best place in MD for "stuff"

I took a trip to Bacon Sails yesterday! Came away with a 155 genny and Mainsail that should work on my boat! for about a 1/3 of new sails! I love that place! tons of used gear too! If you haven't been there, do put it on your bucket list.. well.. at least a list of places that are worth visiting.
It's baconsails dot com

You were less than 7 miles away and didn't even PM for a lunch date with MMR and I?

I feel so neglected.

Bacon's puts out a catalog now as well.

I love Bacons! So many ways to get in trouble. Can't recommend them highly enough especially for sails. Got two nearly new sails for my O'Day 22 there for a really good price.

The new owners have seemed to clean things up a lot, nice place to visit, the people are friendly and knowledgeable. Just purchased a new Forespar Engine lift there and found their prices reasonable as well. I wish there were more places like them!

I'll have to go back and see them again with the 'new' owners. Last time I was there they had great prices, but stuff was everywhere.

I love the place! Been there many times over the years. I'm happy to report the sails I picked up are damn near perfect for my boat! The Genoa luff is 38.5' and the foot is 20.5' which is about a 140-150 for my boat. The Main for my boat needs a foot of 10.75' or less to work on the 11' boom. I was worried that the boom would need to be lowered but found that the Luff for the main can be 35ft instead of the 33.3 ft that the specs say it should be. We took her out tonight for about an hour and the 3 mph wind moved the boat nicely! I'm a happy camper now!

ps: oh, sorry chuckles.. I went on impulse and got there like 3:30 in the afternoon. took the long way home. over the bay bridge and up 213 got home around 10 pm.. long day!
