Garage Cleanouts

Bud Taplin

Amazing what I found as I was TRYING to clean out my garage and storage shed. I will start posting some of the bargains as I find them.

Start with (2) Nicro snap shackle snatch blocks, chrome with black rubber shells. They are unused. The picture was in the Nicro catalog from 1993, with a price of $92.50 each. Current comparable ones sell for about $200 each. I will sell these for $150 for the pair, plus shipping. See attached picture.

I also found one Barient #23ST Two Speed Self-tailing aluminum drum winch. Also unused. This winch is comprable to a Lewmar 40ST in gear and power ratios. I will sell this one only for $250 plus shipping.

I will keep cleaning and looking for more stuff.


I'll take a few more snatch blocks.

I only had two of the Nicro snatch blocks, and they were gobbled up quickly.

To 12reasons, I also found two South Coast snap shackle snatch blocks that are similar to the Nicro blocks that I will sell at the same price. You need to contact me by email to let me know who you are.

The snatch blocks and the hatches are gone, but I will keep looking for STUFF.

I found a supply of 20 turnbuckles that are available at a great price. They have never been used. These are 1/2" chrome bronze closed center body, with a 1/2" stainless toggle on one end, and a stainless swage stud for 1/4" wire on the other end. The W28 uses 1/4" wire standard, and the W32 usually uses 9/32" wire, but could use 1/4" wire.

The complete turnbuckles are $25.00 each, plus shipping.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
