Even if your project is not boat related it is worth a shot as they have many stainless steel items and plumbing parts that are hard if not impossible to find elsewhere in Vancouver.

    It's my go to when needing any marine type gifts..I would like to see a little more gift like stuff. But maybe the owners aren't interested in stocking too much gift type stuff..more for serious boat people
  • Avatar Jamie Haakons ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Absolute gem of a store. Dave and company are very helpful, and have successfully guided me away from incorrect purchases a few times.
    Tons of stock, and if they don't have it they can bring it in quickly.
