Thrift store in SF Bay area?

Does anyone know of a site in the San Francisco Bay area that has used marine parts for sale?

I used to go to the Marine Thrift store in Port Townsend WA, but now I'm in SF Bay for a few months.

Ditto. I kept our boat in the adjacent marina for 18 years. Nice place, nice people, good selection and material is organized well.

Dukes in Sausalito is OK, but small. Blue Pelican in Alameda is great and worth the trip. You can always call and ask if they have what you're seeking.

Re: Thrift store in SF Bay area?

Classified section of Latitude 38 sometimes has some decent stuff, though that seems to have dwindled a bit over the years as online options open up.

I spent some time in Blue Pelican 18-months ago when I was getting ready to head to Ensenada. I found some small stuff - some old NOS ABI bronze fittings, but nothing like the venerable Minney's in Costa Mesa. FYI - Minneys was for sale for a while. I just saw a notice in Lat 38 that they are closed for 2020 to remodel. Hopefully they reopen, but I won't hold my breath. I've had better luck with eBay

I was at Blue Pelican a couple weeks ago, and they were doing a major cleanup/reorganization in the store. The place rocks.

Re: Thrift store in SF Bay area?

Blue Pelican, bought heavy weather gear this year for a third of the cost of new and in great condition. Lot of old folks give it up or pass on. The other great thing, not mentioned yet, you can haggle the price. They wanted 80 dollars for a nice Lloyd jacket. I offered 55 dollars and they took it. So there is that factor.

Re: Thrift store in SF Bay area?

And let's not forget these stores are great for getting rid of your unwanted boat stuff!

I must have made over $3,000. in the year before leaving SF Bay by giving Blue Pelican stuff I've collected over the years (thinking I might need it -some day-) and more pulled out of our boat during our re-fit.

I just replaced my primary bower and consigned the old one to Longship Marine in Poulsbo, WA (where we are now for a few more days) and it sold in 3 days, a quick and easy $350. in my pocket that offset the cost of the new anchor.
