Buy Used Outboards- Don't Get the Shaft

Just in time for summer, we've got some of our best outboards we've ever had. Two strokes and four strokes, these motors are sure to keep you putting around Southern California at a fraction of the cost you'd pay for a new one. The selection changes every week so be sure to call ahead to see what we have in stock. The motors pictured are some of our more "vintage" models, while the real gems are kept inside the store. If you're looking to sell your outboard we're interested in running outboards 15 horsepower or less.

Thank You Southwestern Yacht Club!

Here at Minney's we've always liked to think of our store as a destination for boaters all over the world, and we've worked hard not to let that go to our heads. Yesterday that was a bit tough though when two dozen of the most pleasant members of Southwestern Yacht Club showed up at our front door in a chartered bus for a day of shopping at Minney's.

We try our best to keep boating affordable, and an event like this lets us know we're still doing a good job. Thank you to all of you that made the trip up yesterday, and a big thanks to the organizers who made this possible at Southwestern Yacht Club. We hope to see you all soon!

Varnishing Weather

The rain has let up finally and the sun is out which means its time to break out the brush and tack cloth and get your boats in Opening Day shape. We've recently lowered our prices on varnish and thinner, and we've got everything else you need to get your topsides ready for summer.

PS: We sell our sandpaper at cost.

Spring Is Coming

Despite the gusty winds the past few days it's starting to warm up around here, and almost time to head over to Catalina. Don't waste your money on the water taxi this year, come into Minney's and pick up a good inflatable or rowing dinghy on the cheap. Avons, Achilles, Zodiacs and more just waiting for a good home.

Jibs Galore!

We just tagged and measured nearly 200 headsails of all shapes and sizes, and the new list is online now. We came across quite a few storm jibs in great shape along with some pretty good drifters. Remember to read the comments section on the website closely as we try to include as much relevant information about the sails as we can. If you need more information feel free to call or email us 7 days a week and we'll be happy to help you.
