I can understand if WM is all you have, and they do have an occasional item on sale that is cheaper than anywhere else, but thats it! I have one right by my house and I stop in every time I need something.......on my way to the local chandlery that lies beyond. And every time, I find what I need for cheaper. The local chandlery is much cheaper, has better products, better selection, the staff knows everything about boats, and if they don't have it, they can get it, or find out how to use it, or find out what the heck that strange thing on your boat is, or show you how to make a new one. I would much rather support my local chandlery than the Wall Marine.
SD same thing happened to me. My $2.99 engine zinc is now $3.99 this year, but was rung up for $6.99. I don't think so. They don't know their products at my local store and most of my questions are passed around until all help is exhausted and I go to the chandlery and its answered immediately.
