    Default "Marine" prices.

    Over recent winters I seen various interesting, amusing and helpful threads on here. An incident recently prompted me to start this one. Hopefully it will prove to be helpful at least.
    We had the pressure relief valve fail during our last trip of the year to France. When the boat was lifted this week, I removed it and checked the ASAP Supplies website and found it for £19.51 incl VAT and a nice 5% discount from the RRP of £20.54. Rather than drive from Southampton to Fareham, I did a general search to find one locally. Screwfix sell the same thing without any discount for £4.07 including VAT.
    So a challenge for the winter. What is your best buy for boaty items?

    Fuel hoses for my previous Volvo Penta 2002, VP price £110 each, Hyphose Southampton made up for £20.20 the pair. Ok, maybe engine parts prices not fair.

    got any pics to show what filter you have and how exactly you modded it?
    I recon mine was something like 30-40euro and it's just a 50mm dia by 200mm long pipe but would be happy to change in internals each season for a few euros...

    cheers
