CLucas I spoke with someone there about that a few weeks ago. There's more available online than what is included in the printed catalog. Maybe they'll lower their prices with all the money they're saving... HA!

scottyt i wonder if they are making the print or even specific items smaller, to save on printing costs. or maybe they are just trimming items that they carry muiltibles of, i mean why have 5 pages of pics of harken blocks, with each size shown, just show half the sizes and give a chart with all of em

I knew things were bad, but.....

This pretty much confirms just HOW bad the economy is.

I noticed my new West Marine catalog seemed kinda light. Just threw out the old 2008 catalog this weekend. It had over 1300 pages in it.

The new one has 720.

I am hopeful that things won't get worse in 2009 and will improve in 2010. I've yet to be convinced however.
