Can anyone recommend a good place to go shopping for dock accessories?

I'm looking for lights, a ladder etc....

Thanks Gary

For dock lights, don't get the cheap multi-pack solar light at the big box stores. They are cheap and don't last more than a year. Either spend more for good ones online, or get decent low-voltage lighting. I went through this. Spend more for good quality.

Ace Hardware on 41 would be my first stop. If they don't have what you want in stock they will get it the next day. Much better prices than marine stores. Grab their catalog of boating stuff while there.

Thanks for all of the great info.

I went to Mariners Trading they didn't have anything I was looking for but what a nest place.

Westmarine had a nice dock ladder but as is always the case with Westmarine thwander way too expensive

I'll check out the Ace hardware to see what they have but as ArmyChief suggested I will probably end up buying from Amazon.

Gary

Half the time I use Prime for the free 2 day shipping they send the package through a mickey mouse outfit called Lasership for "the last mile". That last mile can take days. I love amazon....but so far prime has been a big disappointment.
