For my K-Plains I needed a stainless steel through hull cable kit---one for each K-Plain. There is hardly anything to these tiny kits with the stainless steel nut being the largest item. A marine dealer/repair shop odered them for me about 6 weeks ago from CP Performance and still NO kits! They placed a call into CP and asked what was going on and they said they were back-ordered. We ended up having to call Merc and pay FULL PRICE---about $100 per kit----how HORRENDOUS!!!---There isn't anything to these kits......maybe 3 or 4 tiny parts per kit! CP Performance would have been about 40-50% cheaper and that's who we initially prefered, but they couldn't come through. Other than that I don't know how CP Performance usually is on parts and delivery. Sounds like they came through for you on that one.
