I dropped by the brand-new West Marine that recently opened on Rte. 6 in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, to get a firsthand look at the new superstore. I was duly impressed, especially by the selection of fishing tackle, which rivals that of many large bait-and-tackle stores.
Of course, the store also carries every type of boating supply you might need, from engine oil to hardware, trailer parts to cleaners. It also has a large array of apparel, sunglasses, electronics, kayaks, inflatables and even fold-up bikes.
Come see the place for yourself during the grand opening celebration on June 8 and 9 at 114 Huttleston Avenue in Fairhaven.
