I don't know.
You could try cheating and ask the chandler what they sell most of to that size boat. If you ask enough you might get a good idea.

You are right about having the time to buy when the price is right. When cruising I always have to buy when I need something, not when a sale comes up
If you always have your big list and some available cash and keep the beady eye out I think you could have a real wad of cash being at the right place/time. Maybe sharing a full drum of chain with another boat (etc) could give you a bulk discount?
