Big chandlery between Poole & L'hampton?

I'm coming over for a spot of shopping on saturday , 1st on the list is a 4.6 HSE Rangie in Luton, then Littlehampton to collect my new Parker seats!

Prob have a bit of time to spare so can anyone point me in the direction of a decent chandlery which keeps stuff on the shelf? I'm mainly looking for electronics, Raymarine and Icom. A set of Musto waterproofs would be nice too!

I would order through Bluewater Supplies on Albert pier. They do some pretty keen prices on anything you want. www.bluewatersupplies.com

You'll pass within about 400 yards of Force 4 in Chichester-follow the Selsey sign off the A27 Chichester bypass and it's on the left. Don't know how much they keep in stock at that particular branch though as I've only ever driven past it.

Port Solent Marine Superstore is the place to go. Nice display of various makes of electronics, chartplotters, radios, depth sounders and RADAR. Prices are generally better than most around for a shop, but better deals are sometimes had via online sales places. But this way gives you a chance of a touchy feely of the kit before you buy.

It is quite a small branch.

There is also Aladdin's cave in Bursledon:

and Piplers in Poole itself (on the quay):

Marine Superstore at Port Solent is probably the largest though.

Cheers

Another vote for Marine Superstore. They claim to be the largest chandlery on the South Coast. They sell just about anything you could want and it's all quite well priced. They have most plotters etc setup so you can have a fiddle before buying. Apparently they do a 10% discount for members of the RYA although I've never tried this.

Well I ended up at Marine Superstore and filled the boot up! I bought a Raymarine C80 at one of the cheapest prices I've seen this side of the pond and they threw in an Icom 505 fixed VHF with it. Got an ST40 depth, Raystar? 125 antenna, Navionics gold chart and a set of Musto MPX waterproofs (in black to match the new boat) all for 2k

And the best bit? I dropped in a VAT form at the harbour on my way home so now I sit back and wait for HM Customs to send me a cheque for 300

All that and my new seats from Parker Ribs (cheers Andre) and that was my new Rangerover full to the gunnels! (charcoal grey to match the boat of course!)

Nothing like a bit of retail therapy

There's a very good chance you'll have finished the boat and launched it before you get the VAT cheque through your door! and I presume customs didn't stop you and ask for their 3% in Jersey?

I have heard this before but theres no rush! As for GST, they saw the seats in the back and asked the value. I said a couple hundred quid and they said on your way then! I get the impression they're not as keen on the extra workload as Terry Le Sueur is! I might get hit for GST on the new car when I re register it but 90 is better than the 2000 I would have been clobbered with under VRD
