Where to get parts - Palma, Gib or Canaries?

We are currently in Mallorca (lovely) and will need to stop somewhere to get a few engine parts, new epirb, inspect and repack life raft etc before Atlantic crossing. Wondering on the experiences out there as to the "best" - as in ease and cost - place to do this? Planning to check out Palma and then head for Alicante before going down the coast to Gibraltar and then Canaries. Appreciate your input!

Re: Where to get parts - Palma, Gib or Canaries?

Having done the same at two of the locations Gibraltar and Mallorca, Mallorca was cheaper. Visit the chandlery near the North end of the marina in Palma. Just across the main street where the walking path ends.

We found food and boat parts to be expensive in Gibraltar. Food was much cheaper 200 meters away in Spain, but fuel is much cheaper in Gibraltar.
