Yes;
Thanks for the tip;
The reality of it is;
Through UPS a brokerage fee of $40. will be added to the cost and also a 7% tax fee will be tallied.
Hence my inquiry for a slightly used one that would only cost US postage and declared to them as a "gift" to make it a real option.
It has become increasingly hard to get new parts from the US lately..

If it only cost postage, then it is a gift. I Have one I only used once several years ago, when I helped my grandma mount a pair of 250 Mercs on her Donzi. Grandmas gone, the Donzi is gone, but I still have the lifting ring. Like new $25 plus postage. I just sent a part of similar weight to a guy in Ontario, cost about $11.

So we are talking about $36 with shipping;
Correct?
PS-
Let's make absolutely sure that it is THE right part that will fit on my 1997 Merc V 6 offshore model.

Ritzyrags,
Had I known you were north of the border and the UPS fee so high...just for my information have you verified that $40 lately?

Bail money will be more than $40 for lying on a Customs form.
