Default Source for stainless marine riser gaskets...

I really dont mind paying $11 bucks a piece for them, butI find the 29 dollars in shipping their website tried to charge me a little unpalatable...

So if anyone has a source for the standard round riser gaskets, do tell.....

Thank you,

I ex.them and ordered. Still 13 bucks in shipping. And the wonder why the Marine industry is on the rocks. 3 dollars worth of gaskets in a 2 dollar envelope is 35 bucks.....

USPS...... 1/4 the cost ... UPS stupid price. FedEx...... not as bad as UPS..

And, USPS is 3 days or less, coast to coast at the low price. ( And their "Priority" boxes & envelopes are free!! )

Thank you,
Do you mean the circular gaskets between the manifolds and risers? Last time I did them, I went to the auto parts store and bought a sheet of gasket material. Cut them out to match the old, and worked fine.
