Re: Cheap boat parts?

I have found that when I buy Cheap parts I end up replacing them for a heavy duty part that will last for more than one season. Blocks and such is one area I don't cut corners . I buy some off E-Bay and have good results most of the time. I also watch adds on the sites where people are dumping gear. The storm Sandy has left lots of boats on the dry and owners are looking to make a little money back. You can tell if the parts are damaged or not. I will by used If the price is right and the condition good.
