Congrats to sailboatowners.com on the completion of 20 years providing a combination service to sailors that doesn't exist anywhere on the web. Their ships store provides quality products at an affordable price and their customer service is beyond what West marine, BoatsUS or any other marine company provides. Then there's the best part of all, which is the FORUM'S, which sailboatowners.com provided to sailors for free. Additionally, sailors provide the best answers to questions bar none. Like Peggy Hall, I became associated with SBO about 20 years ago. I was looking for a company to distribute my products but every response I received was "call us when you've established a sales track record" - how was I supposed to establish a sales track record when no one would carry my products?? Then one day I called Bly Berkin. I expected another NO but SBO was trying to get off the ground and I had a connection with Catalina owners but most importantly Bly & I came from similar backgrounds and we connected and additionally developed the SAIL TRIM FORUM. SBO has sold my products to every country in the world except China & Russia -- don't know what it is with those 2 countries. Our business relationship has been unique -- I never personally met Bly & Phil and we never signed a contract -- our relationship was based on a verbal hand shake, which is unique in today's world. I hope SBO is successful for another 20 years.
