For starters and alternators, I have had good luck with ARCO marine in Florida.

Will put my comments here too, so they might be found easier by someone doing a search. Very good company with excellent service. They are now the first place I will go to for parts and will recommend them to everyone.
They are .. LandMarineToys .... They are on Amazon and E-bay but I just order direct from them to keep their costs down.

I looked for a list and couldn't find one, just this thread. Hoping that this will come up if someone does a search. Is there a list and how would I find it? -Thanks, Ed
