HYDRAULIC AUTO PILOT-WIND SPEED-BOAT SPEED & DEPTH INSTRUMENTS-POPULAR ROLLER FURLING SYSTEM

















Several times this month men have cut up the dream yachts they were building and sold us all the hardware and parts. They foolishly purchased tens of thousands of dollars worth of parts, electronics sailing gear etc. years before their launching dates. In their case, that date never arrived.  The pictured electronics, auto pilot etc. are in new condition but have been sitting for probably 5 years?  The roller furling system has only been in storage for a year or two. All items are sold with no warranty and may not be returned. We gambled and made large purchases in your behalf, come on, ROLL THE DICE ??? ALL ITEMS LISTED ON THIS POST ARE SOLD

New Surplus And Used Electronics...













Having a store next to Newport Harbor I get hundreds of good used electronics each year.  Usually I wholesale them off to guys that make a living selling on e-bay etc.  It seems that when a skipper purchases a local boat, the first thing he does is put aboard all new electronics and his used ones end up in my store.  Displayed are three items that I pulled out of the back room that perhaps you would be interested in?  We do not test these electronics, some may not be returned and some may.  It's a bit of a gamble on your part but the odds of winning a great buy are 1000% better then Vegas...ALL ITEMS LISTED ON THIS POST ARE SOLD
