Default source for switches

Working on redoing my helm and need to buy switches. What's your best, most cost effective supplier for rocker switches? Even saving $4 a switch makes a little difference when you're buying 15+ of them.

I have used these guys for Carling switches.
https://www.otrattw.net/home.php
They were nicely priced and fast custom engraving turn around.

I have also used New Wire.

And International Marine for custom dash panels.

Toggle? Rocker? Boca?
Time frame? With Toggle or Rocker and no rush, you can probably amass by thrift shopping various sites for Clearance and Flash Sales. Amazon too..
If it's Boca you desire and/or you want it now- shop NewWire above and also look at
wholesale
Hodges - can catch good deals every once in a while
iBoat
BOE
Proboat website absolutely SUCKS for searches/navigation, but I've found some GREAT deals here; with just a little carpal tunnel to show for it.

I buy most of mine from Allied Electronics, hard to find ones I would go to Mouser. Digikey also has a complete selection..

It's been some time, but last time I did this I bought from DigiKey - https://www.digikey.com/products/en/...r-switches/195

Really like how they've done the online catalog and being able to filter by brand, type, etc at the top.

Another vote for New Wire Marine. I have used them several times - great products and customer service.
