Acadia Sails, Mt Desert - great service.
Old Lyme Marina, Old Lyme CT - parts dept very helpful with Yanmar parts.

I sail an Island Packet 35 on the great lakes now but I used to keep my boat (a Morgan 32) at Old Lyme Marina. You will never find a nicer more helpful group. It is a testament to the family that, when the original owner passed, his children took over and have kept the tradition for another 20 years!

As for Hammilton Marine-ditto They are the best place for quality line and other equipment at really good prices. They also have a huge store of classic bronze fittings by (the now defunct) Wilcox and Crittenden
