I always hear about folks getting deals like these that come along once in a blue moon. Today was finally my day!!
My mother-in-law works with an industrial rigging wholesaler. I guess they have a good working relationship, and when he heard I had a boat he offered to help me out if I ever needed anything. I finally took him up on his offer and asked for 3x 120' lengths of 3/8 inch dyneema or Sta-Set X line for some new halyards.
Looking at West Marine, they list it at about $1.21 a foot, so I'm thinking I may come in at $300.
Well, he just got back to me, and he was able to get ahold of 600' spools (my choice of color) for $150 each!! To make it even better, they are going to put the eye splices in the 3x 120' lengths for me as well. I jumped on 2 spools. Almost wishing I'd have gotten some more at that price, but I didn't want to take advantage.
That's 1,200' of 3/8 inch double braided line for $300!
I thought it would be cool to see who else has gotten some rediculously good deals on boat stuff.
