Where can split flex tubing 1-1/2 and 2-inch (used for covering electricals and hose to outboard motor be purchased? Local dealers do not carry it because boats now come pre-rigged. Thanks

Mine came from Armstrong (the bracket people).

Check your local West Marine.
Some have it, some don't; but they can order it for you. This is likely the most expensive route.
If you have a marine warehouse in the area, that is where you'll find it at the best prices.

I bought a ton of it in assorted sizes from this guy on ebay. He has it up to 2" I believe. Here is a link to his auctions. Fair prices and he shipped fast.

Alternatively: http://www.boatstoreusa.com/product.asp?categoryid=Steering& subcat1=Hoses%20/%20Tubing&subcat2=na 5' rigging tubes, along with the termination for both ends available on that page.
I have not dealt with his web store, I've always visited the actual physical storefront in Stuart, FL.

You can also use bilge tubing and just cut the the tubing with sissors to make the slit. Not the same but is a cheap alternative.

Wet/Dry vaccuum hose works well for the motor wires

My local hardware store has flexible sump pump discharge hose in 1" and 2" diameter. It also can be cut down the middle to make "split tube"
