When people first walk into Minney's their jaw usually drops and once they get that under control they ask us where we find all of this stuff. Well as you can see from the picture this stuff finds us. We pay cash for boat gear, and just this morning within 1 hour four different people came in with loads of gear. So if you've got things to sell, we're the people to sell to.

If you're looking for some sheet winches, you've come to the right place. Aqualast, Barient, Barlow, Merriman, Lewmar, Harken and more. We've got dozens of great single speed, two speed, and self tailing winches at a fraction of what you'd pay for new ones. Our selection changes all the time, so email or call us with what you're looking for and we'll see what we can dig up.

This weekend, April 15-18 is the annual Newport Beach boat show, and judging by the number of docks they've been putting together all week it promises to be bigger than ever. Head down and check it out, then stop by the store and our prices will seem even more reasonable. Santana conditions today, maybe they'll fend off the storm that's headed in this weekend and we can all go sailing.

I was fortunate enough to get a day off work this weekend to head down to San Diego to sail aboard Rose of Sharon in the 22nd Schooner Cup. There's really no more beautiful sight than watching 9 schooners on a beam reach around Point Loma, and it's even more beautiful when you're in front of the pack looking back at all of them. The fantastic race was followed up by a great party at Silver Gate Yacht Club with stiff drinks and good food... and the more we drank, the more we supported the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. There really is nothing like the feeling of giving back.

There are only 22 days left until the start of the 63rd annual Newport to Ensenada race, and Minney's has everything you need to get you down there in time for beer and margaritas and maybe a leap into the pool from the roof of the Bahia... depending on the wind of course.
We've got your charts, flags, life jackets, etc... along with plenty of "light wind" gear like boom vangs, preventers, drifters, and lightweight sheets.
PS: If you're looking for crew, or looking to crew stop in and have a look at our bulletin board.
