How to buy an externally regulated alternator for my engine?

Where's the best place to purchase an externally regulated alternator for a Westerbeke 40?

Trying to search for these on the Internet is like punching myself in the face. It takes me to all sorts of vendors where I can't find what I'm looking for. Can anyone recommend a vendor that will actually help me find what I need?

Buy it from the guy that has helped most of us here do better work than we would without his assistance.

I'll second this! I purchased my Balmar alt and reg from Mainesail's online store - best price and he's always been very helpful when I have needed advice.
