If you haven't heard of West Marine then you must really be out cruising
the isolated spots. They have practically everything and shopping
couldn't be easier with their no hassle
return and replace product policy.
We even met the founder Randy
Repass out here cruising, and he's doing a lot to help make the store
and products they sell even better. If you bump into Convergence out on
the water tell them Billabong says hi and for crying out loud, DON'T ask
him about your order status. If you are trying to save a few bucks, try
out our coupons or the
Clearance Sale - up to 50% off top quality products their products.
And the not so serious laid back
cruiser who's serious about their gear!!

All blocks, as with every Garhauer part, come with 10 year unconditional
guarantee. All of our blocks are Garhaurer except for the custom
mast sheaves. We use the snatch blocks as spinnaker and staysail turning
blocks, which is usually a no-no but not with these Snatch blocks. We
also have the track cars and found they are significantly cheaper than
others but still very high quality, maybe it's because they don't
sponsor any racing campaigns. With SWL up to 5000 you can get them for
almost any purpose, I know people who use them on their parachute anchor
(or at least plan to). Use the load tables under the Read More section
to help you make your selection. If you're confused about what your
boat's load are or how to set it up, use the
Harken Spec. Enter your boat type, select
view loading report.

We use the
HawkEye Portable Handheld Depth Finder to
scope out uncharted anchorages. You can bring it in the dinghy with a
hand held GPS and chart a pass into a lagoon, prior to bringing in the
big boat, or you can snorkel around the anchorage to check the depths of
any obstructions. They also have a "cool"
Marine Infrared Thermometer for measuring
surface temperatures remotely, just aim the laser at the surface you
want to measure and you've got it. It's useful when attempting to
diagnose engine circulation or cylinder problems. If you don't like the
idea of the handheld depth sounder they make a perfect
Micro Surface Mount Depth Sounder for the
Sea Breathe makes various 12 volt
snorkeling options. We use the single diver deck unit, but I would
upgrade to the two diver deck unit if I could. This would allow both of
us to drift snorkel together after we cleaned the bottom. They have a
new two diver to one diver mode, which allows one diver to use the two
person unit and save 7 amps over the full two diver mode. It can also be
used if two divers are in shallow water. We made a quick release
connection in our forward locker that easily converts to battery clamps
when we lend it out (which seems to be quite often). Hmm there you go,
cover the costs by renting it!!
