Blue Seas Fusebox

Good day all, I live in Alberta Canada, and am flying out to Houston TX for a vacation. I am wondering if these fuseboxes are common in bike shops down there or is it one of those, you must order of the internet kind of things? Thanks for your help.

Hit a Boating supply store. You might even find them up there in the great white north.

Don't hold me to it, but I want to say they where designed more for marine environments, so typically any online marine store worth their salt has tem in stock. They are not readily availble in bike shops, and more than likely special order if you wander into a marine shop. Typically, you will be able to find a better price online, but I guess its customs that hits ya pretty hard your way on orders.
You could try looking up a marine shop in houston and working something out with them so you can pick it up when your there, jus insure they;ll have it

I got mine at Boater's World. If you go to www.bluesea.com and click on Find a Dealer, you can find out who sells it in the Houston area

They are definitely at Academy Sports and Outdoors stores. I got mine there and have seen them at others. Go to academy.com and do a location search (zip code) to see which one is nearest to you.

+1.

I've seen them at most Academy Stores in the Houston area, except some of them only carry the glass fuse type, not the ATC type. IIRC you can find them at Gander Mountain and Cabellas too. If you have trouble finding a store near your location there are plenty of boat shops in Houston that probably have them or an equivelant.

Yeah, I almost got that one, but I didn't want to wait for it to be shipped and the BS was cheaper. The Centex looks nice.
