TO ALL CLUB MEMBERS September 2013
Recently, West Marine has cancelled our membership in Port Supply, negating our ability to purchase items at discounted prices.
As a result, we have negotiated an agreement with Boat Owner’s Warehouse (BOW) in Fort Lauderdale to enable MBYC members to purchase at a discounted price (with the blessing of our Commodore, Marcia Orsolini). BOW prices, in general, are less expensive than West Marine’s prices, plus we get an additional discount of approximately 10% (depending on the item). If the item is in stock, they will ship to us by USPS, or UPS, and since shipment is Florida to Florida, we should receive items overnight, with no charge for ground shipments.
We can order on-line, by phone, or in person. Identify yourself as a member of the Marco Bay Yacht Club and give them our member number which is 02-6424214. They will corroborate who you are by referring to an abbreviated club roster. Please ask for a BOW catalog to be included with any item you order.
It is important that you do not abuse this purchasing privilege by giving the number and your name to a non Marco Bay Club member.
