Have you lost fenders? Or find them difficult to adjust, try these.

After losing far too many fenders in rough weather, I decided to give these a try and was really impressed, since we haven't lost any since. Also as a bonus, my wife loves them, since they are SO EASY to adjust up and down depending on the docking situation. A WIN WIN for everyone.

Doing repairs, or new installations? Want well priced Marine supplies.

Since we can't afford to have mechanics, or electricians do all the work on board, we choose to do most of the work ourselves. If you're handy with tools, and can read up on the details of certain jobs, you can gain a major sense of accomplishment and appreciation for a job well done.
