Boat parts for less $$$

You many not know it, but I run a boat parts store as part of my business endeavors. I try to keep my prices as low as possible, and will match any other dealers price unless I’m going to loose money on the sale. There are a bunch of TF members that have bought from me, and it seems that on package deals I’m able to price beat the competition and save them some real dollars.

Wether you buy from me or not, at least you should check so that you can see what wholesale pricing is for an item. I’ll be perfectly honest my prices are a fixed 10% above what I pay for the item. Subtracted from that is the 3% credit card fees I have to pay. This lets you know what dealers pay, again wether you buy from me or not.

Here’s the great thing though. If you see an item on my site I have it in stock, and it will ship the same or the next day. My store is updated automatically based on stock status. If you see it on the store I have it in stock.

Please take a look www.boatparts4less.com

Kevin;
Been looking at your site and I like what i see.

As i need stuff (and who on a boat does not need stuff!?) I will be sure to look deeper at what you have to offer.

All the best.

Nope

The idea behind the boat parts thing is that I have other business ventures in the electrical industry and used them to obtain a wholesale account at a distributor level (nobody buys direct from the manufacturer unless you are west marine I suppose.)

I do not make any money at it. Actually I loose money, but I am also my own best customer.

Having some sales allows me to keep my accounts open.

Sorry, we can only ship to USA locations. That might change in the future, but for now...

"You don't sell lugger white engine paint do you?"

Northern Lights generator white paint is best matched with Moeller Sea Foam 25109 paint. I would assume that Lugger uses the same.

I'll have a look at that. Maybe buy a spray can firat and test it, then more if needs be.

My "big" project for this fall/winter (well OK, cooler period down here), is to clean the engine room top to bottom. Includes sanding, Rustoleum the engines in certain areas (like the coolant cap and other parts that get hot and lose the paint), and repainting.
