Defender Warehouse Sale
I moseyed on over to the Defender Warehouse sale yesterday. I haven't been for a few years, and I had forgotten what a madhouse it can be. But well worth it. Some great prices (generally, at least 10% off of their already low prices, sometimes a lot more).
Picked up some bottom paint, replacement flares, electric connection hardware and other goodies. They were out of pfd replacement bobbins, but the manufacturer's rep gave me some good advice about using some old ones that had been sealed up in my basement. Also had a chance to speak with an Interlux rep about an old can of Cetol, and an electronics expert about my vhf antenna. That's what makes the sale special: manufacturer's reps galore. Better than a boat show because they are there to sell stuff, and give real "retail" advice. A good time despite the really crappy weather.
