If you know of any supplier and/or manufacturer of spare parts (original or replacements) please let me know and will try to create a comprehensive list.
Submit spare parts supplier details by using the Send Message system.
Don't forget to give details of the country in which the supplier is located!
To sell second hand (used) spare parts or one-offs please use the For Sale/Wanted section.

Some of these suppliers mentioned (like Sea-Sure and Nauquip) might not deal directly with the public. A buyer will need to go through a chandler. However, this is not a problem. The hard part is finding the supplier in the first place when the chandler cannot help.

Crockery

"Navigare Vivere Est" Crockery
as supplied originally with the Dragonfly by Quorning can be bought in Europe through mail order (or in their shops in Germany) from
A W Niemeyer: www.awniemeyer.de
On their internet shop there is no photo (or not a correct one) and I would advise ordering their catalogue (Katalog in German) via the internet.
This type of crockery is called in their catalogue 'Acopal-Glass-Geschirr' and you will find it on page 211 in the 2005 catalogue

Electrical/Electronic/Instruments:

LEDs for Navigation Lights
A UK company sells an LED light bulb that fits into the navigation lights on Dragonflies. This bulb reduces current consumption from 1 Amp to 100 mA for each light. This is a significant saving for the outboard powered Dragonflies that do night sailing.
These bulbs have a 15 mm diameter base with two connectors at the bottom and two offset pins coming out the side. This type of bulb fitting is called Hella 1142.
This is the company...
www.ultraleds.com
On the left hand list click Boat/Caravan, then look for this bulb...
Ultraleds Light Tower 20 Super Wide Angle Leds (1142 Hella)
These bulbs are suitable for a 12 Volt system with battery charging (i.e. safe when the voltage rises to 16 Volts). They can be connected either way round, and output a constant brightness even with varying supply voltage.

Bulbs for indirect lights in saloon
Use Dashbord Bulbs (12V) from automotive parts suppliers.

Raymarine and Autohelm Handbook/Instruction Manuals:
Raymarine parts are easy to buy just about anywhere, but did you know that their owners' manuals for current and many past products are on their website, free to download. Print out just the pages you need and keep these on your boat instead of the full manuals, a bit more weight saved.
See here... www.raymarine.com/raymarine/Default.asp?site=1&Section=3&Page=166&Parent=3

Electrical Connectors:
The waterproof deck and bulkhead connectors Quorning use are hard to find, but I have found a supplier in the UK. Quorning use these connectors when fitting optional equipment, for example the deck connector for the wind instrument, and exterior connectors for solar panels. These connectors come in 2, 4 and 7 pin varieties.

A UK supplier is Compass Watersports mail order. The information on their website for these connectors is incomplete and wrong, but the information in their paper catalog is complete and correct. They will send you a catalog if you call them on +44 8704 204075. Look in the index for 'Plugs' (page 124 of the UK 2005 catalog).
You can order your catalogue online...
      UK:www.compass24.com
      Germany:www.compass24.de
The connectors are made by a German company called Binder. Their website is www.binder-connector.de. They have an online catalogue. Their product range is huge. Look for series 692 connectors. They do not sell direct but will put you in touch with distributors around the world.

Paint/Sealants/Tape etc:

Grey Tape for the front edge of the forward beams
UK: SAC Graphics, Tel: +44 1384 443744 mail@sacgraphics.co.uk
Colour is Smoke, width is 1.5 inches.

Sealant Tape for the Sliding Main Hatch over companionway:
The grey 'wooly' tape on which the main hatch slides is known as pile weatherstrip and is commonly used for aluminum storm doors and window tracks. It's often referred to as wool pile weatherstrip even if it's not wool. I found a few sources for it using a Google search for the term [Pile "weatherstrip" grey].

In the UK there is a mailorder company which sells it as draught excluder strip for sliding windows, which is a narrow self-adhesive strip of fur-like fabric. This company will post it to anywhere, and are now aware that this is the stuff for Dragonfly Trimaran main hatches!
www.foxdiy.com
Click on 'Draught Excluders' in the category list. It is part number DE104, called Exitex Brush Pile Weatherstrip.

Rubber stops for sliding hatch: can be found at a local hardware store. If necessary cut them to size.
On the 920 the main sliding hatch hits two rubber bumpers when it is fully closed. These are small circles of grey rubber.
The size Quorning use is 18mm diameter which I have not been able to find. However, the next size up (22mm diameter) fits.
A UK wholesaler is Select Hardware and the part number is 31934PB. They will be able to tell you who your nearest retailer is. www.selecthardware.com

Sprayhood and Cockpittent

Schultz Sadelmageri, www.schultz-kalecher.dk (in English, Danish and German), Tel +45 76 32 12 00.
Schultz are also the only supplier I know for the sprayhood hinges and fittings that connect the sprayhood/cockpit tent to the hull. These fittings are made by Ekko.

Zip Sliders
The zips used on the sail and cockpit tent covers are YKK Vislon size 10. The sliders often corrode or break when used on a boat. It is difficult to find a supplier who will sell a small number of just the sliders, but this UK company will. They will post abroad as well.

Water Stays

John Blaiklock (UK) writes (and I agree):
The best value supplier of water stays appears to be Quorning Boats. Many normal yacht riggers seem unable to work with 10mm Dyform wire themselves, and will sub-contract the work if they are asked to produce these items. This makes their prices expensive.
