I hope this finds each of you very well. My apologies for being incommunicado. Many on here whom I have grown close to have known about my back situation and the incredible pain I have had for over 3 years. I underwent an experimental surgery not yet FDA approved in clinical trials. I had a vertebra REMOVED and got a titanium spinal disk (To go with my new Dutch Buckles!) implanted L4 and L5. I awoke from surgery with NO SPINAL PAIN or sciatica!
Now on to the subject of this post:
We have all chased the best price on Amsteel. For the most part we all come back to our beloved Redden Marine. 7/64 is .21 cents a foot.
If you have a West Marine store nearby, they carry it for .27 cents a foot. Here is the kicker: Join West Marine's captain's club for free and get 10% off amsteel purchases. To avoid shipping costs, order online and have it shipped to your local store.
Here is the difference on 100' feet of 7/64:
.21 X 100' = $21
+ Shipping $6.30 (to me for regular shipping) higher for different locations.
Total = $27.32
.27 X 100' = $27
10% off: -$2.70 ($24.30)
My local sales tax. +7% ($1.70)
Total price: $26
I know it isn't a lot off, but in this economy every little bit helps. West Marine also carries a lot of other hammock paraphernalia. Just a heads up for anyone who lives near a West Marine.
