Yep, Fred has great stuff at www.trickmarine.net . He is a member here and is known to be a great businessman (among other things).

Also check out http://www.bammarine.com/ . Marc from Bam is also a member here, and has done well by me as well for direct Mercury parts.

Another option is Outdrive Exchange & Performance Marine, I've have purchased new controls & gauges from them recently. Great customer service & best prices I found 623-693-0470, either place has good customer service and should be able to get in the direction you need, good luck.

If you're looking for aftermarket stuff Trick Marine is who you should call.
If you want genuine Mercury parts try Offshore Performance in Ft Myers FL. They are a Merc dealer. 239 489 0884

Fewer builders continue to use Zero Effort controls,Livorsi is better,and Trick sells them cheaper.And I'm seeing more Trick tabs on more boats now than K-Planes.Again,Fred is the guy to call.

Call Doller and buy the geniune, OEM, parts as far as planes. The rest are junk.

Throttles are good at Mercury but Marine Machine and Livorsi are prettier. Close your eyes and they are all equal. It just depends on what feels the best oin your palm.

Ah, OK then Pat.

Our tabs are currently on the following boats:

Cigarette 46
Cigarette Top Gun
Donzi ZR-38
Dragon
Extreme
Concept
Nor Tech
Apache
Hustler
Chief
Pantera
Blackhawk
Schiada
Sutphen

.......and more.

Pat's entitled to his opinion. I happen to disagree as do many others who choose our tabs for their custom boats.
