You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Complaining about the prices at West Marine is like driving a Hummer and complaining about the cost of gasoline.

Actually, the H1 uses diesel - I think the H2 & H3 use gas . . . don't know, don't really care.

But I get the metaphor anyway . .

I was told by a guy that owns a Hummer that he got 6 mpg. SIX! Not sure if that is true, but even if that is close... whew! That could get expensive. Of course, without a Hummer, you cannot be properly prepared for WWIII. And let's not forget, who better to master the act of Road Rage that a man with a Hummer!!

My point being, you knew the gas mileage sucked before you signed on the line. As far as the WM thing goes, yes, their prices are high. It is convenience... kind of like 7-11. But you can go in and touch and feel and browse. I actually like the stores - especially on items I need right then. They have even taken back stuff that was very questionable. However, I order most of my stuff from Defender or Sailet or someone online. You can save sales tax and it is cheaper. But you have to wait to get it and it is a pain to return.

I have been to west marine stores all over the country, including Tampa, (lots and lots sw fl & Miami Area), San Diego (best store I have ever been, worth going in just to look around), SF, Maryland area, North Texas (Denton, Dallas, and Garland), Houston/Keemah, and several others that escape my memory at the moment. With maybe one or two exceptions, each visit was pleasant and you have better than a 50-50 of getting someone knowledgeable. The guy that runs the Denton store got his beginnings at Valiant. I like them and like the people (again, with just a couple of exceptions). If someone were to give me a hard time, they would not see me again.

So go find a different store and realize what they are, and what they are not. Personally, I am glad they are around. Not to mention, they have big parking spots for my Hummer!
