Never again... I ordered some running rigging from APS. Just about everything was messed up. Every line was short by a several inches to a little over a foot. I had some eye splices added to some lines. One was done very badly and had to be returned. Some lines where the wrong diameter and had to be returned. When I contacted them they only said "sorry about the lines that are short" and at one point wanted to charge me to swap lines that are the wrong diameter. The return / swap of the eye splice... I still don't have it and the customer services has been rude. The same folks that seemed very helpful when I placed my order are now treating me like dirt for their mistake. Going on week two and I still don't have my return... If I did not already have the short lines ran on my boat I would return the entire order.

Hi Ben. We are really sorry that your order experience was not a positive one. We pride ourselves on providing the best rigging in the industry to our customers and we apologize that there was some confusion. As soon as we received your lines, we went straight to work to replace them for you and send them to you overnight. Now that you have received the new lines, I hope they are working better for you. Please let us know if we can do anything else for you in the future for you or your boat.

The great customer service from sailors, not retail robots, great selection, and good prices (not the lowest, but close) keep me coming back year after year. I get apparel, fittings/blocks, and custom halyards/rigging, either all online (the inventory indicator on the web site appears to be accurate), or by phone (for rigging). They're fast, in fact I usually get things the next day from my online order using the cheapest UPS option - advantage to being in Norfolk! I highly recommend APS.

I placed an order on Tuesday. They don't bill my card until Friday, unfortunately I had made some other purchases between Tuesday and Friday. This caused my card to be overdrawn and the APS order was declined. So I email APS asking them what I need to do in order to resolve this problem. They suggest I call. So I call and leave a voice-mail with a different credit card and my contact info. It is now a week later and I've not heard anything from them. I guess they don't want my business.

They sent me the wrong size shirt. I had it printed with no way to know it was a childs medium and not adult. APS offered discount on another but not replacement. I returned from the regatta and found a new shirt, at no charge--so someone at APS made it right.
Response from the owner - 3 months ago
Hi Fran. So sorry about the mix-up with your order but happy that were able to make it right for you. We look forward to working with you again in the future. Cheers!

Great website, lots of sailing gear and spares, just needs to stock magic marine clothing, helpful with suggestions on sheet and hardware applications as the guys are sailors themselves. Returns are a little slow but always sorted out, even if I have ordered the incorrect part. Bought some rigging and was incorrect, they replaced it immediately. Always had great help from John. PS the prices on the 50 mm start watches are a little over the top.
Response from the owner - 3 months ago
Thanks for the great input. We love hearing suggestions from our customers. Looking forward to your next order with us.
