Our latest effort to become your favorite boating supply dealer, we have added thousands of engine parts, right now you will find parts for outboard engines like Yamaha, Mercury, Mariner, Johnson, Evinrude, Honda, Nissan, Tohatsu, Chrysler and Force. We don't have every part listed yet, we are working on that as you read this. To start we are just adding outboard engine parts that the average boater can install by themselves, mostly the bolt on items. We also sell internal engine parts and parts for lower units, but those will be the last of the engine parts that we list. If you don't see an engine part that you need, just give us a call at 727-420-1513, chances are that we have it in stock and ready to be shipped. We realize that most of the engines that our customers will be working on are one of the outboard engines listed above. We expect to have every part, for every engine listed around the end of April. After we have completed listing all of our Outboard engine parts we will then concentrate on the I/O engine parts. We have in stock, parts for Mercruiser, OMC, OMC Cobra, Pleasure Craft, Volva-Penta and Crusader engines and stern drives. Give us a call for any I/O engine parts that you need. We can help!

(Understanding the product options and checking out) First lets go over the boating supply products with options so you understand why we made our site the way we did. For example, let's say you are interested in the Teleflex SeaStar HK6400 Hydraulic steering kit listed above on the home page. When you click the image, bold text or the view details button you will be brought to the "Details" view of the item. You will see at the bottom under options, the price says $89.99. That means the base price of the item or any one of the options is $89.99. In this case all the hose kits are $89.99, go ahead and click on the HK6400 image above and look at the options and select any one of the hose kits. Did you notice that no matter what lenght hose kit you selected, the price stayed at $89.99? After selecting the lenght hose kit you need click add to cart. You will then be forwarded to the contents of your cart. Now you need to go back and get the rest of the steering kit. Click the continue shopping link and you will be brought back to the page you came from. You will see the price still says $89.99. Now select the SeaStar kit, no hoses (HK6400) (+$610.00) from the options. Now the price is $699.99. The +$610.00 means that option is $610.00 plus the $89.99 base price. The total for the steering kit with no hoses is now $699.99. Then add that to your cart. You can add as many products as you like to the cart before checking out. To checkout (pay for items in your cart) click the checkout button on any page, review the items in your cart to make sure you have everything you need. This is the page where you can adjust quanities or delete unwanted items in your cart. If you do adjust quanities or delete items click the update totals link. Once you are done wth that you just click the checkout button again and you are brought to the page that asks for your shipping details. Once your shipping details are entered, click the checkout button one last time and you will automatically leave our site and get forwarded to our secure payment processors site. Fill out the required info, click the pay button and you are done. There will be a button on that page that says continue. Click that button and you will be brought to our site and you will see the details of the order, like products purchased, order number, amount paid etc. You will also be emailed with the details of the order. We usually ship in one to two business days, when we ship your order, thats when you will get a tracking number (via an email) The process sounds hard but really thats how most web sites work. If at any time you have a question or need help, our phone number is listed on the right of every single page, just give us a call.
(The easiest way to navigate this site) Laptop users who use the mouse pad, will find it easier to navigate our site using the site map by clicking here. We noticed this when we accessed the site using one of our laptops, we thought it was difficult to use the left navigation menu without a point and click mouse because the pop-out portion of the menu will dissapear if your pointer leaves the menu. The same will apply if you are using a regular mouse, but we feel there is more control with a regular mouse so its not as big of an issue. The site map is just a page with a link to all the products and categories on our site, The bold pink links are the main categories. The regular text links are sub-categories of that particular main category.
(How to save shipping costs on our site and many others!) When purchasing heavy items, its easy to save on shipping costs from most sites using these techniques. Lets say you need four 14" wheel and tire assemblys. If you add all four to your cart and checkout, the shipping will be higher than if you add one at a time and complete the checkout process one at a time. Heres why. The 14" tire and wheel assemblys weigh about fifty pounds each, so the web site thinks we are going to put four, fifty pound items in one box. That heavily (no pun intended) inflates the UPS shipping rates because UPS considers that as a tripple oversized item. The fact is, each wheel and tire assembly is going to be shipped individually with its own shipping label and tracking number. But the web site has no way to know this. I noticed this the other day when a customer bought two of them, the shipping rates were outrageous. Thats when I contacted him and straightened the situation out. After he bought the items using this technique, the shipping was $20.00 less. If he was buying four of them using this technique he would of saved $40.00! For example you need two 14" wheel and tire assemblys and two hub kits, just add one hub kit and one 14" wheel and tire assembly to your cart and the shipping is $10.00 less because of the weight. Thats $20.00 that stays in your pocket!
(What to expect if you are paying with a check) When paying by check, after the purchase when you click the continue button at our payment processor instead of being forwarded to the page that says "thank you for your payment" the page will say "sorry, there seemed to be an error" Here is why. The "thank you for your payment" page is activated by the IPN (Instant Payment Notification) code that we are sent when a payment clears. Well, a check takes four days to clear so its not instant. That is what triggers the "sorry, there seemed to be an error" page. When we check the orders, the ones paid for with a check will say "Not Authorized" unitil the check clears. Thats when we get the IPN code and your order becomes "Authorized". From that point your order will be shipped just like any other order.

Our boat parts and boat accessories category is the largest category we currently have on our site. With thousands of boat parts already listed and thousands of marine parts available in our retail store in St. Pete Florida that are in the process of being listed on our web site. Marine parts come in a wide range of different qualities. We strive to bring you only the highest marine quality boat parts and accessories from the worlds finest manufacturers.
We are in the process of putting together what we believe is the largest online inventory of boat parts that is published on the web. We buy truck loads of boat accessories and engine parts every week. We have direct access to hundreds of thousands of general and specific boat parts and accessories. In fact, we have a wider vaiety of boat accessories than that big Marine company in the West. Compare our prices with them and you will see why we are the largest privately owned boat part and boat accessory super store in Florida. That's a big deal since there is a boating supply store on every corner in this state. We have nine, 3" thick catalogs full of boat parts and trailer parts that we order from to keep our inventory stocked up. The big corporate marine stores lack the knowlegde to compete with us. They just sell thier boat parts and boat accessories for much more money than we do, so they can afford to spend millions on tv commercials advertising thier boat parts.
