🠈 West Marine 🠊
West Marine is out to make boating fun. This boating giant traces its history to 1968 when Randy Repass began selling rope from his garage in Sunnyvale, Ca. The first West Coast Ropes retail store opened in 1975. West Coast Rope found something to tie itself to with the acquistion of Port Supply and changed its name to West Marine Products.
The company continued its expansion and went public in 1993 on the the NASDAQ with symbol WMAR. Today they have 380 stores and about 5000 employees.
