Re: West Marine no longer matching prices...

Defender's prices seem to be right in line with everyone else now. With exorbitant shipping costs, prices are not all that great. West spends a LOT of money on their great catalog. It's almost a reference book. I appreciate their efforts to compile and send it every year. I have often found some good bargains at West brick and mortar stores that do not appear online. Jamestown also has a very complete catalog they send if you spend X # of dollars. There are some other internet sellers like Redden and LFS that have some prices way below Defender or West.
