Re: Very Good Vendor Thread

When I renewed my Boat US membership this year I received a flyer along with the new membership cards advertising their boat graphics services. I've been wanting to re-do my hull striping and previously was having a hard time finding the color and width I needed, especially in lengths other than 50'. Boat US sells 150 foot rolls meaning that I could do my boat twice whereas with the 50 foot rolls I'd have to get two and have two 20' waste pieces. With the member discount the price was cheaper than the shorter rolls would have been. I ordered the tape Sunday and received Tuesday. The tape was very well packaged and it came with detailed application instructions and a plastic applicator. I'm not associated with Boat US other than being a dues paying member, I'm just really pleased I was finally able to find what I was looking for at a reasonable price.

Re: Very Good Vendor Thread

I'll throw one out there, a little different, but the author of the Sailing Book A Sail of Two Idiots, Renee Petrillio. GREAT book, which was very informative. When I found her contact info, and emailed her to ask some questions... she responded with a very detailed response every time. A great resource!

Fawcetts marine / Pyacht.com in Annapolis. Great service. They'll go out of their way to help you find what you need. I'll never go to West store a block away.

Re: Very Good Vendor Thread

I would like to thank one of my most important suppliers. Their products are free although I am sure they spend tons of money building and maintaining them.
Their service has been dependable and available everywhere as far as I know.
Their product has made safer navigators of even the likes of me, and, never charged me a cent.
Thanks to the Government of the United States of America for providing GPS !!

Re: Very Good Vendor Thread

On my last outing, curiosity got the best of my grandson and he pulled the lanyard on our inflateable life vests. My search for a replacement arming kit lead me to WM and Academy sports and outdoors where I found what I needed for $20 a pop.
Went to Amazon and found what I needed for $20, but get four recharges for the price of one!

Outland Hatch Covers. Great alternative to the typical canvas hatch covers. Fit perfectly, easy to install, and does the job it was promised to do. James and his brother Steve Outland are always available for any questions and help.

Re: Very Good Vendor Thread

Defender just gave me great service! I ordered a clearance PLB during the sale. They warn you that clearance items are offered for sale first in-store, so they might not be available. The PLB sold out, but they offered to sell me a similar PLB at the sale price even though the sale was over. One of the choices was my first choice among the non-clearance items.
