I have had several shipments from them and they have all been delivered without any problem. In fact I contacted them recently about a set of Velocity Stacks and had the email reply back the next working day.
Have you checked your spam folder - I had a similar problem with a query I made to Eddie Marine, waited ages for a reply and then when I was clearing out the mail box I found the reply had been filtered into the Spam box - just a thought.

Yes I did but it wasnt to bad. The first order I bought was the foot throttle and slider plate, shipped into the UK, and it was still cheaper than buying the same throttle on its own from some sites I have seen in the UK.

Hi Freedom, Send email again, for the attention of Christine, to christine@bobsmachine.com

They can take a couple of days to reply, I don't think she works every day. They have posted to me in Spain.

You could try Land and Sea ( www.land-and-sea.com ). Generally they are a bit cheaper than Bob's but I don't think they open Mondays.

If your going right through the boat before the season you might like to explore the Rex Marine website ( rexmar.com ) who also do solid mounts.

You could talk to Steve Salmon. He makes very good nylon replacement mounts.

Blufin, I think they still do mounts, heads and the small stuff. But your right, it's a long time since they offered turbos, nitrous, water brakes and all the good stuff. Because Merc. mounts are basically cylindrical they can be turned out of hard nylon giving most of the advantages of solid ali.
