Boats have always had the power to inspire people. They have been the impetus behind countless songs, paintings, works of literature and early retirements. West Marine’s founder and chairman, Randy Repass took his passion for boating, channeled it into a prosperous business and revolutionized the way people shop for boating supplies.
Marine Products Pro Shop has been in business since 1971. We are the original water sport pro shop located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Surrounded by water within 10 minutes of the Salt Lake Airport..
We have one Marine Products location: The Mother store @ 949 West 1700 South In Salt Lake City, Utah 84104 801-973-4017. We stock what we sell and very seldom need to drop ship from factories like so many other e-commerce sites do.
The people at NRS believe that customers deserve the best. They offer high-quality, affordable gear and service that’s friendly, fast and efficient. Bill Parks, the NRS Founder and President says, “I created NRS to be the kind of company I would want to do business with. We treat our customers in the way we like to be treated.” NRS manufactures an extensive array of rafts, catarafts and inflatable kayaks, plus a complete line of apparel and accessories for all types of boats and boaters. Their apparel spans the range from base layers like their sun protective HydroSilk to fully protective dry suits, wetsuits and all the gloves, footwear and life jackets needed for comfort and safety on the water.
No matter how much experience you have, it’s always a good idea for everyone to review boating safety rules before departures.
One of the most important parts of boating safety is to use your common sense. This means operating at a safe speed at all times (especially in crowded areas), staying alert at all times and steering clear of large vessels and watercraft that can be restricted in their ability to stop or turn. Also, be respectful of buoys and other navigational aids, all of which have been placed there to ensure your own safety.
Make sure more than one person on board is familiar with all aspects of your boat’s handling, operations, and general boating safety. If the primary navigator is injured or incapacitated in any way, it’s important to make sure someone else can follow the proper boating safety rules to get everyone else back to shore.
