Time to kill, Bay area

Where are the "go to" chandleries in the Bay Area? (Not West Marine) Any used/swap places?

Two that come to mind (that's all that can fit in there!) are:

1. Svendsen's Boat Works, www.svendsens.com
2. Blue Pelican Marine, Blue Pelican Marine Nautical Consignments - Home

Both are in Alameda.

Alameda ... Haven't visited the two vendors, but have heard good words about them from boaters.

both of these are great stores. Sven's is pricey but they have stuff your average place (e.g. West Marine) does not. Blue Pelican's inventory is constantly changing, since it is a consignment store. I know a lot of people who've found great stuff there.

Happy shopping/ killing time!
