Are We Short On Aluminum?

Local WM is switching from zinc anodes to aluminum. But the manager says they have not received a shipment in months. The shelves are pretty bare.

Thanks, I'll check them out. Until now I've been using boatzincs(dot)com. I've always found them to have good prices, good service, good products, and quick and reasonable shipping. But it's always good to comparison shop.

That's just the chaos known as West Marine. We'll see if changes are made, but under inventorying basic items and not having the ability to replenish immediately is a problem.

The biggest problem at our local WM is they keep rearranging the store every few months !!!

Oh, and don't get me going on the caliber of help. Workers should understand customer service and boats.
