I also have dealt with West Marine in Kingston. Ruth, the manager is good too and they price match to anywhere cheaper. Pride won't.

Pride is the old KYC mentality. Times are changing and they haven't figured that out yet.

Example of KYC mentality: We sailed into a little harbour which contains mooring balls owned by KYC and as we sail in we get yelled at by KYC members on the dock there wanting to know if we have THE RIGHT to use their balls (like they own the entire bay), before we even get to the balls. I anchored past them. Ignorant..!!

Oh well it takes all kinds.

Trident is a nice place. You should enjoy it there although you have to sail a bit to get out into the lake. Just watch the cable ferry.

So what's the name of your boat?? I'll keep an ear out for ya on the water..
Couldn't agree more about the mentality of Pride, they should take a more laid back approach on things! (especially about the balls in the bay.... jeeesh)

but as for the Chandlary..... You have me tempted, though I may just spend my whole paycheck there! the boat's name is "After Five", shes a blue hull (kind of faded, in need of a buffing) with a white deck, we are usually out at the 40 acres (thats what ive been led to beleive its called) but we may be heading down to the lake here in the next week or so for a good run to the main duck possibly!

Also, what might I see you sailing along? I work at Confed basin (dockhand) so I may see you if you are in town!

I however CAN NOT support the recommendation of Pride Marine as above. I find them expensive and they will not price match as other providers will, I also find them not the least bit helpful. I have attempted to deal there on a few occasions but now I never go there and neither does anyone I personally know.

We all deal with The Chandlery in Ottawa. Same products, much better prices and very helpful. They mail order also. We drive up, usually with a big shopping list and then do the town at the same time. Makes for a nice day.

But, as always suit yourself....

Where do you have your boat.?? POH, Collins?
Hey! It just so happens Im a hop skip and a jump down the Bateau at Trident! (not our first choice because of location relative to the lake, but hey, seasonal slippage came with the boat!)

I'd honestly have to agree with you about pride marine, in that its mostly there to satisfy the quick fix on a boat, which I admit- did for us because of the pieces we needed to step the mast. but this chandlary place.... Ive never heard of it. Although, upon looking it up I may have to go there to get one of those "kid in a candy store" feelings. It really looks like a place that ill have to visit.

Hey Ron,

The decision that we have made is a great one. we recently had an inspection done on the boat and it is in imaculate shape strucutey! fortunately for us, the previous owner had allot of information on the boat such as manuals for the yanmar engine and even the original options list from when it was bought! besides that, because it is a fairly popular boat, I have managed to find allot of info online, and even on this forum from other owners. And like you Im new to sailing (at least in keel boats, I have much experiance with dinghys) it nis a great boat. handles like a champ, although at times the engine (I have a yanmar 8 diesel) may seem underpowered at speed, but it is perfect for marina handling. Mine is a 77' so the styling cues are differant but both the 77' and the 80' are handsome boats.

Sorry for the late reply, but if you need any more information or any help with finding anything (schematics, manuals) dont hesitate to ask, and I can see what I can do.

Cheers, Shayne

"after five" shes called. the mast is off the boat rite now, but to put it on we first have to find a piece for the Furlex roller furling system on the jib. Because i'm new to the world of keel boats (I usually sail lasers/ 420s) I need a bit of help with finding the model number and some parts for the furler. The piece missing I believe is a sta-lok fork that fits to the bottom of the furler to allow the turning movement. I'm glad to be on this forum, as there seems to be allot of people who know their stuff! and hopefully you guys could help me out.
