Defender is the BEST

Since we can't say bad things about anybody, I thought I'd follow along and say something real nice instead.

DEFENDER is the BEST online retailer, bar none. Their website works well but their phone support is even better. Great people.
And not only have I had great experiences but I constantly read of other accounts of great service after the sale from Defender.

I HIGHLY recommend everyone to take their on-line business to Defender.

Defender may be lower prices *SOMETIMES*...but I'd gladly pay an extra $5, $10, $20 to ensure Sailnet keeps on going. I dont see Defender doing anything for the community of sailors out there...and I'm glad to see Sailnet not "monetize" these boards with subscription fees. The ads are ok to have, but I dont think they cover the bandwidth bills by a long shot....so, please support the sailnet store!

NightOWL...you are NO LONGER permitted to disparage any vendors here. Please remove your negative comments about Defender. This is a gross violation of the terms of your membership.

I hate Defenders shredded paper packaging. I have it all over the carpet in my house from last nights delivery.

Oh well, small price to pay for excellent service!
