The over pricing at West Marine is well known by most experienced boaters. For my wife, in Vancouver BC, I bought one of those electronic relief aids for sea sickness - I paid $165 Canadian. I found the same product on the net for $80 so I emailed Wretched Marine and they responded by passing it on, and you can guess what happened, I never heard from anyone. Since this happened around the time of my hip replacement surgery, I didn't follow up on it - more important things on my mind, like pain relief.
So I vote now with my dollars, and you can guess where they aren't going. Steveston Marine is just a very short block up and I can get basically everything there and not get as ripped off.

I have been dealing with Dave at the Tracy store for years.. one of the few decent guys on the HHN property.. They will even match Defender if you do your home work.
That said any one that has owned boats long enough knows when your going to spend a little coin shop around .. West is not going to be the cheapest in most cases but it makes up for it in convience..

|sailingdog||That is good news... maybe WM will start concentrating on selling with some effort on customer service... rather than focusing on price gouging.|
