The flexi trunking for cabling is Hellermann Tyton and widely available on eBay uk - I use seller "petelox". Available in black and white. Cheaper than Hedley Ellis. I use HE for Gewiss light switches though

Another one: squadron and targa seats, the Recaros: these come from www.capitalseating.co.uk in Birmingham and they will cover them in your choice of fabric

Brilliant list - very useful.

MJ Marine trimmers were apparently used on our boat via EBY (boats.co.uk). Unfortunately quality was poor and most of the seat studs have ripped out on the external upholstery as the material is very thin and the internal seats look about 10 years old (and are about 18 months old) as the leather is very creased. I'm just stating a fact as its possible it was being done to a price (we paid boats.co.uk directly) but nevertheless I would not have to expect it to only last a couple of years which is the way ours is heading - and we paid quite a lot of money for it. I have only just found out the supplier that EBY used so haven't yet contacted them - hopefully the response will be positive. I have some addition works to do to - I'm looking for trimmers in the Cardiff area if anyone knows of any?

Great list thank you.
I’m looking for the barrel nuts in the circular shower frames on a 2006, 52’ Targa.
I’m also thinking of changing all the lights to LED any suggestions on quality fittings of suitable wattage.
Thank you

Lots of people replace the old G4 bulbs with good quality LED ones. Is your boat 12v or 24v?

Cantalupi were the original manufacturer. Worth speaking to https://www.improducts.co.uk/ regarding replacements. If you do replace the old ones, please don't chuck them away, I'll have some as spares!

The Tank Company looks like it went bust in 2010. Are they trading under a different name now?
