Old Sailor / New to the Site

Hi from Ontario Canada! This is a great site! I'm planning a trip to the Bahamas and I have a l-o-n-g shopping list so I watch the For Sale Ads closely.
Fair winds to all

Welcome aboard,

If you have a lot of gear to buy and are looking for some some deals have you tried Craigslist.com?

Welcome!

I agree with the suggestion to give Craigslist a try. We have bought a lot of gear from there and have gotten some wonderful deals. Best of luck.

Aloha and welcome aboard!

This is a great place to find out about shopping for boat parts. I would look on eBay too but buy only if you can look at the items first.

regards,
