best place to buy nautical gear (2008)

NEW YORK NAUTICAL

Need a housewarming gift for someone with a view of the water? NEW YORK NAUTICAL has harbor charts, tons of boat crap, and books for the armchair merchant mariner. The guide for decoding smokestack colors is out of print, but my second favorite is What Ship is That?, by Bob Basnight, which at $15.95 could almost help you pass for a sea captain.
