What's the Best Chandlery in Vancouver ?

Dealing with Steveston Marine in Kitts is discouraging! Some of the staff are nonchalant and snappy, like next! It feels like that ship is rocking with a disparity with the staff that seem to be part of the family (that owns the business?) and the staff that just work for them.

Boat owners are great customers, because there's ALWAYS something you need for the boat! Yet it seems no Chandlery here has a loyalty program? And certainly Steveston has no sense (in my experience) of any value of the customer coming back again.

Preferably i would like to spend my money somewhere else, I have found Martin Marine to be ok and i can make the trip to North Van easy enough. Any other suggestions in the Vancouver area, I am fairly new here

Re: What's the Best Chandlery in Vancouver ?

West Marine on West 2nd Ave, at Fir St.

A few businesses down on Granville Island, by Westerly Yacht Sales(?).

Popeye's, in North Van - Popeye's Sailors Exchange, Sailors Auction, Marine Consignments, used marine Vancouver, marine consignments Vancouver;
(They used to be good for used equip - also have new equip - but not as many great deals since John turned things over to Johan)

The chandlery at Thunderbird Marine in West Van.
