Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound
You might also check out longship marine in Port ludlow, they have new and used stuff on consignment. They also get weekly deliverys from fisheries and wm's wholesale sidel so if staying in PT, fulltime, going this route might be better than a drive into seattle also. Not sure if there is a consignment place in PT or not.
The fuel dock fellow at PT, also has accounts at Fisheries, may have one at WM/port supply (wholesale side of WM0, he too could order and get something up there from one or the other also. Again, if you do not want to make the trip to seattle etc. "The Chandlery at Winslow Wharf" also an independent, gets weekly drops from Fisheries and WM.
There is also 2nd wind in the freemont area of seattle, for used stuff too. There is also a place in Everett, but seattle for PT would be easier to get to, if port ludlow place does not have something.
