Online marine retailer recomendations

I am looking to order a bunch of running and standing rigging online. I am looking for an online retailer. Here are my requirements:

1) Decent pricing
2) reasonable shipping to Canada
3) Ships via USPS as an option - no just Puralator or UPS
4) Relaible

Canadian retailers prefered but will buy from a US retailer if they fit the criteria above.

Thanks, Eric

Online Marine Retailer

I use Defender Industries: defender.com. Reliable, old company, very knowledgeable, excellent customer service. Also, Sailorman in Ft. Lauderdale offers used rigging for sale. They've been around for decades: sailorman.com.

I'd call Rigging Only. They're one of the best rigging vendors I know of, but their website is a bit lame.

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.

I replaced all of my running rigging this year with Samson line from Defender. I was pleased with both product and service (and price!).

Ditto Defender. I've been doing business with them since 1982. They used to be by far the least expensive (but the competition was M&E and Goldbergs). Now they're just mostly the least expensive.

Can't help you with Canadadien retailers, but if you have chums in a local club you might want to inquire if they buy full spools of line and "co-op" to the members. And assuming you could coerce a member into fronting the buy for you.

For Running Rigging

Cajun Trading
Cajun Trading Company, commercial and pleasure marine cordage rope products, Boating and Yachting Supplies, running rigging kits
I've used them twice now. Great Prices, Good to very good Quality, My only complaint is that they are a little slow to ship.
Oh yeah, Canadian company

Defender is a good company, as is Sailnet.com, but for STANDING RIGGING, I'd go with riggingonly.com over either.

I agree with rigging only. Also, stay away from rigright.

I've used Rigging Only on several occasions, standing rigging, lifelines, roller furler, and have been happy.
