Thought I'd pass along stores I've found here in Anchorage that've been useful for rigging the boat, chime in if you know of any others.
Polar Wire - just north of diamond on frontage road, they have every kind of wire at good prices that are suitable for a boat. AND they have a bunch of marine DC parts and pieces AND they have Blue Sea ACR relays, fuse holders and power busses, + commercial panduit 120 lb zip ties. GREAT store.
Hi-Tec Professional Paint - Lake Otis and 63rd (ish). Every kind of coating product known to man, and all kinds of chemicals and supplies.
B&Js - A street and N Lights - Lots of accessories and best fishing store in Anchorage.
A1 Propellor - C and Potter (? dont remember exactly) Dude has forgotten more about propellors than I'll ever learn
Superior Machining and Welding - In Post road area on Viking.
I was in Fastenal looking for 1/4 inch aluminum plate as a backing plate for a cleat, a guy in line from SM&W overheard me talking and said "come on down, we'll see if we have any scraps I can give you".
I went there and I walked out with $40 bucks worth of 1/4 and 3/8th plate - and they refused to take any money at all. How cool is that!
They also rebuild brass and stainless props, and from what I saw on their workbench they do a darn good job.
Deweys - off 76th and Old Seward ish. Advice, yammy & boat repair, and some parts and pieces.
Alaska Mining and Diving - Commercial drive, say what else you want about them, they have a good parts department and accessories.
Marita Sea and Ski - Debarr and Bragaw ish behind Dennys, good parts department, boat/motor repair, and accessories, good store.
Ace Hardware on Muldoon - Best selection of stainless screws, bolts and oddball fasteners that I've found in town.
West Marine - Diamond and C ish, good selection of accessories and misc boating stuff, can be more expensive though.
Thats all I can think of off the top of my head.
