Treasure hunting liveaboard style

As a liveaboard/wanna be cruiser, we always are on the lookout for boat supplies and a great price. To be able to cruise someday (soon I hope) we have to do some treasure hunting and research for the parts we need. That is where Don’s Marine Salvagecomes into the picture.

This place is a massive marine salvage yard and also carries new items as well as special order parts. The people are friendly and helpful, just tell them what you are looking for and they will point in the right direction or take you to that area and even help you look for it.


It is like going on a treasure hunt every time you go. Even if you know what you are looking for and think you are just gonna be there for a few minutes to get that one thing, it never works that way. Every time we go we get caught up in looking around and think of all the possibilities…


In my previous posts I have spoke of Ken, our boat guru. He is the main man in charge at Don’s and is a wealth of boating knowledge. If he doesn’t have it, he can find it or order it for you. If you need to know how to start or finish a project, just ask and answer will come or he knows someone who can help you.

So if you live in the Tampa Bay Area take the time to get to over and take a look.
