We have a Spectra Catalina
300. After 11 years of use, we now need to replace the membrane. Previously I bought parts
online directly from Spectra, but I see that they now closed their online store and we must use their dealers. The last time I looked (2012?), the membrane was $400 in the USA.
Being in Australia
, the marine
ripoff centre of the universe, that already annoys me - to be forced to deal with a local. The local dealer quoted me closer to a grand a few months back when I casually asked, which at the time only reinforced my intention to buy online from the USA.
I would prefer to buy the real Spectra part, not a cheap
Chinese copy membrane. Any ideas or recent experience on how to buy a reasonably priced Spectra membrane from a non-Aussie online store
