Try www.defender.com / They make stock or can special order. In my experience, there prices are far better than West Marine or the other retailers.

I, personally have had terrible luck ordering anything from Defender Marine. With there low prices comes very low quality.I have a friend who ordered new hayard lines for his Cal 40, They sent the three lines he ordered in about 5 or 6 pieces!When he called and told them he needed the lengths he ordered in individual pieces as they were to be used as halyards,they laughed it off!
I could go on with a couple more of my own personal experiences,but needless to say I will never,EVER order from them again.

You can get racing bouys and shapes/flags from a company called ETP. It stands for Engineered Textile products. Their web site is: www.etpinfo.com
