Default where to find stainless braided trim lines????

I am looking for a stainless braided trim line for a TRS set-up, and was wondering where I should be looking for one???? Mine has a pinhole in it and leaks down, so I have the fittings and everything. I am going to call around locally today and see if somebody could make one up, but I was figuring you guys would know who would have one.

Good luck, I changed a set of lines last year. first set the morrons didn't use marine grade fittings. So then I ordered a set of fittings and hose from the manufacture but they were not assembled. Then I find that all the local shops only work with specific brands. So check your fittings for the brand then do a search for a distributor near by that hopfully can help you out. Cause the other isssue i ran into is they said they were not suppose to assemble anny hoses unless the parts came thru them

Many hydraulics shops will carry the exact Mercury-approved hose and fittings. Check around. Don't forget to make sure they clock the fitting correctly, since you don't have a straight fitting on either end...
