Have you tried calling any of these fellas.
I did see boats in some of the listings.
Most shops I have seen have been 90% other stuff, and only 5-10% marine.
But they do have stuff, and they will get stuff for you.

Marine is only a small part of their business, which is why so many of us buy on-line. But that has allowed some real specialists to come to the fore.
