As a headsup for those who might be thinking of making some incidental purchases in the coming months - Boaters World has just become the latest victim of the economic downturn. Prices will be at a 30% discount as they liquidate. probably a good time to shop before the inevitable accompanying rise in west Marine prices....

Boaters World going Out of Business

Everytime I walk into Boater's World, I walk out empty handed...I don't know why I ever bother.

What kind of stuff do they have? I need to pick up two new USCG fire extinguishers and one of those canned compressed air horns--think they have that stuff?

To update. I've gone in twice now, a week apart, and the prices aren't anything to write home about. They are still more expensive than at their online store (which incidentally will not be closing down) and they will not price match the online store (apparently they are two different companies).
