Bestboatwire.com

Has anyone used product from bestboatwire.com? Prices are incredible, not sure if its too good to be true. Looks like most of their stuff is from NSPA?

Thanks in advance.

John

Re: Bestboatwire.com

I've purchased wire and connectors from them and been quite satisfied. That was several years ago, but I haven't heard of any complaints since then.

I ordered some #2/0 two years ago. There was some fulfillment delay while awaiting arrival of new reels, I was told, but I did get it.

Re: Bestboatwire.com

Had not heard of bestboatwire.com so checked out their website. Looked strangely familiar; products, net options, even the logo so looked at their "contact" us link. Address is in Brunswick GA next door to the address for genuinedealz.com. Phone number slightly different but the fax number is exactly the same.

Prices on bestboatwire.com a couple of cents cheaper than genuinedealz.com but BBW.com charges shipping and GD.com is free shipping.

How very strange.

Anyway, been buying from Genuinedealz.com for years and they're great. Assume BBW.com will be similar.

I've never ordered from them but have ordered several times from Gregs marine wire which has the same address and phone number as bestboatwire and cheaper prices. The wire has always been good and shipping was about a week.

I was about to be very mystified when I read this but looked at the web site for Gregs and it shows location in Greenville PA, not Brunswick GA.

Are you looking at a different bestboatwire.com or a different gregsmarinewiresuppply.com than I am?

I should have slowed down when I read the original post, I was looking at bestmarinewire.com, not bestboatwire.com.

Re: Bestboatwire.com

I've ordered twice from BBW in the last couple of months. Great prices, shipped out the next day, arrived in 2 days (to CA) and all pieces were exact length or longer. Very good quality cables, heat shrink and connectors.
