    another forum I'm on has had both the liquidator and a sales manager posting on the topic.....bottom line, don't look for any real bargains, they'll sell off most the inventory to BW and some other marine supply dealers.

    Yep...helping a buddy refit some pumps, radio and compass on a Pro Line he just bought. Their online prices were some of the highest. Best prices?? BOE Marine, out of Md. Also gave free shipping over $250.

    yeah the stores show 10-30% off but apparently all prices were raised from the warehouse prior to the liquidation. I have a port supply account at WM so generally I'll get stuff there or from on here.
