    I had this catalog that had all the fittings, portholes, rope, etc that I would need. Well the wife says she tossed it and now I can't remember where it was from. All I can remember is it was blue :) I've searched the net and can't find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    They weren't it but I ordered Vetus's catalog.

    My Vetus catalogue is green (one of them). Plastimo has blue?

    I thought it might be Noah's also, but no luck there. I just want to be able to pick some nice windows and hardware. I tried searching canadian shops but came up empty.

    Ok so it was FOGH Marine. They no longer offer a catalog and it's next to impossible to find anything on their site. Any recommendations for cleats, ports and anything else?

    Thanks everyone. I like what marinemegastore.com has but it's in pounds, I'd get killed in the exchange. West has what I want and they're not too expensive. Now the problem is how many ports, cleats, etc I need. My plans don't specify that. I'll be ordering through the winter, I can't wait for my first item to arrive.

    I order from a number of online sellers. Some mentioned below. Here's a few I frequent.

    boatfix.com
    Great Lakes Skipper (e-bay)
    Boaterbits (e-bay)
    Discount Marine (e-bay)
    Shipwreck Salvage (e-bay)
    Greg's marine wire (e-Bay)

    As you'll see e-Bay is my largest supplier of boat stuff. We have everything sent to a UPS store in Upstate NY and pick it up there. Saves on excessive shipping and brokerage costs. You will still pay tax when you land the purchases in Ontario.

    The catalog you were thinking of might be Mermaid Marine or Stright McKay or Hutchings Marine or any number of other wholesalers. I don't think any sell directly to the public.

    Our windows are coming from Wynne (wynneinc.com).

    Post more details on your boat, size, model, etc. and we can help figure out the hardware you'll need.

    I'll be building a Hartley 14 with cuddy for my first, next 2 will be without cuddy. The plans also show how to make the hardware for the sails but I'm going to buy pre made, I can't weld and can't cut metal. I'm also working my way through the sailmaker's apprentice to keep me busy during the winter.
