Question Buying from Sailnet Shop

Do many of you purchase from the Sailnet online store? Is it safe to purchase from them? Relatively new to the "buying over the internet" thing

I'm about to purchase some life vests and a couple of other things from them. It'll be my first purchase. I've heard some positive and some negative (mostly positive). In any case, they do support this very free forum that keeps us all entertained. So I'm definitely giving them a shot. You should too.

Ordering online is next to impossible in my experience. It is great they support this board the way they do, but price wise, its rare that I find a bargain on anything I need. I have noticed some killer prices on close out stuff, so it is worth watching or getting on their spam list.

Good to go

I've bought quite a few things and always did well. As has been mentioned, it is easier to purchase via the phone.

I've used them for several purchases. Their closeouts and special purchases are often very good deals, and they're competitive on many other prices. However, their e-commerce engine leaves a bit to be desired, so I would highly recommend calling them and speaking with them over the phone if you have any large purchases or a list of items you need.

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 ordered from sailnet once

And that was enough, I had horrible customer service experience. Would never again. But thanks sailnet for the site I love it.

Oh give me a break. I've had a bad experience with virtually every site and store I do business with. One experience does not an informed decision make.
