Question Where to find the right replacement blades

I have wrecked the blades (http://flickr.com/photos/joschmaltz/2762168044/) of my Air Marine Version 1.9 from Southwest Windpower (Serial #18176). Trying to get replacement blades with only the above description and a picture with my boat in Kot Kinabalu and myself in Hong Kong - and neither Southwest nor their local dealer in Hong kong replying to my enquiry...I found blades on West Marine (http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=302460&storeId=10001&lang Id=-1&catalogId=10001), but I am a bit reluctant to order unless I am pretty sure they are the right ones. Can anyone help?
Thank you!

Hi Joe - Sorry about your parts troubles. I hope someone can come up with the part number for your blades. Also the fuel filters. They should be pretty common. I am surprised you can't find them.

How was the passege to KK? When are you hoping to make the next leg? Are you going through the Philippines or direct to HKG?

Hi Dan,

The trip to KK was great - 7 days straight sailing and no mobile phone network anywhere close... I am planning to go up the Borneo coast for another 100 nm to Kudat and haul her out to get some woodwork done. From there? Who knows....I guess up the Phillipines is a better idea than going straight to HK (we had a #9 Typhoon here yesterday...)
All the best!

We've been watching! Stay dry.

It must be tough to be separated from the boat for extended periods. Hope you get back to her soon.

I do not think the blades from West Marine will fit. The blades from WM are for the newer Air Breeze. I think you have the older Air X Marine. This might be better :

Look at this.

I just ordered from altenergystore - great personal service and I finally found out from Southwest Windpower that its the old 303 model:
"The wind turbine you have is an Air 303. Our part number for the set of replacement blades is 3-cmbp-1022-02. You can purchase the set directly fro us for $94.00 plus shipping."
