Annapolis used parts store

I haven't been back to Annapolis for years but there used to be a great used boating parts store there. I bought some parts for an old stove there one time and wonder if it is still there. Anyone know if it is and is it still a great place to browse through?

Re: Annapolis used parts store

Absolutely concur -- Bacon's is full of deals for those willing to dig through all of the bins.

It helps to have a good idea of what you're looking for, and how to assess whether or not the one you've found is really serviceable. Is is, after all , a consignment shop.

Re: Annapolis used parts store

Bacon's is a great example and there are others like it. To expand on the OP's question since it has been well answered. What are some others of these special places?

Annapolis............Bacon & Assoc.
Ft. Lauderdale......Sailorman's
St. Augustine.......Sailors's Exchange
Jacksonville..........Pier 17
Oriental, NC..........Sailor's Consignment

What are some more? Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Re: Annapolis used parts store

Bacons is the place, loved browsing in there for hours. A buddy of mine bought a 37 Endeavour that needed a new main sail and found a used one there that look like brand new. He lucked out that week got a good deal on the boat and found the sail the same day.

Anyone know places like that on the west coast or other regions?

They are all over in coastal towns & cities. Check Good Old Boat mags website - they have a big list of such places.

One day I'm going to L.A. just to check out Minneys and that boat junkyard in Long Beach.

I'm off to Bellingham on Tuesday to check out the used/consignment store there - it's pretty good but their prices are all over the map - you have to be careful there. Popeyes in North Van is pretty thin these days and they are not carrying sails anymore. The Mariners Exchange in Steveston closed recently and I haven't been to the place in Sydney for a couple of years - they used to have LOTS of sails.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Annapolis used parts store

Not nearly as awesome as Bacons but the back room in Fairwinds Marina is full of used stuff...
