European Control Boxes

I was looking around here and saw the control boxes and trim indicators that Salmon Powersports builds. I was wondering what other hidden treasures you have in Europe as far as custom hardware.

I'm rigging my twin engine boat and would really like to find some unique hardware. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a salmon shifter! It pisses all over any other shifter! Dan on this forum here is making me a custom top plate out of stainless.

Jeff,
Steve Salmon is 'fairly' unique, certainly in the UK, he's been making custom rigging components for nearly 20 years, trim indicators, controls, bow ballast tank pick-ups (a rare thing in the US, but absolutely essential, which I've never really understood) and many custom components for racers & powerboaters alike. His work is superb, though he can be a wee bit slow to deliver!
I have plans to stock his product lines, so hopefully, if someone needs something, they can have it imediately.

There are a couple of necomers to this scene, namely Cyco & Hotshot marine, both of which are producing custom stainless work, including controls.

I don't know of any European based manufacturers, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
