Jamestown Distributors

“For Boaters and Their Craft”

70,000 items online - wholesale marine and building supplies, lots of boat stuff that is not easy to find elsewhere, like kevlar or carbon matting.



Do-It-Yourself Canvas

Sunbrella, canvas, vinyl, and other materials; sewing supplies; kits and videos for making your own sail covers, sail bags, cushions, and even sails!

Go get just one quote for replacing your cushions or whatever, and then look at this site . . . and trust me, an $80 sewing machine is plenty strong enough to sew most of the stuff on your boat.



Not a marine supplier, but they do have things you might want, such as stainless steel threaded stock.
