Good chandlery places in W Sussex?

I'm heading oop norf in a couple of months for a holiday.

To save me hunting around when I get there, can anybody in the area recommend some good "we stock everything" chandlery type places in Sussex, for me to go and have a dig around in?

Preferably along the Worthing/Shoreham/Brighton area somewhere, there are loads of boats around Shoreham so I guess there will be some good places to cater for that demand, but never having owned a boat until recenly I've never taken much notice of those sorts of things on previous visits. A Google turned up a few likely suspects but just wondering if there is a place I might have missed that would be worth a visit.

Or indeed anywhere else that would be dangerous to visit with a loaded credit card

Thanks

Ah, there are lots of good chandlers in the W. Sussex area. Probably.

I don't know about Brighton area, but if you go West there is Alladin's Cave in Chichester.

And
Marine Superstore at Port Solent, Portsmouth (OK I know its in Hampshire, but only just) is worth a visit.
http://www.marine-super-store.com/

Let us know when you are around and you could meet with the (very) odd L'ampton or Solent Ribber.

Try Brighton Marina on the other side of the lock .

There are a few in Littlehampton just before you get to the Marina by road

Also Google found one at Shoreham Airport which I have driven right past, only it used to be a pilot shop last time I looked!
