    Mark, I dont think that Mike @ Rex is making one at the moment, on the HB boards it was quite the topic, kinda like HB sending out a shirt with a subscription! lol not beating up on Mike, but I think with having the internet in your pocket these days- a book full of parts is kind of a thing of the past IMO
    everything you need is on his website! www.rexmar.com
    This is a good spot for hud to drop a nudie bomb! J/K Mike!

    Those catalogs cost a good amount to print, then there is the cost of mailing. I am sure with this tough economy (especially hitting the boating industry) it will be sometime before there is extra cash for a catalog. The website does just fine for now, I know a ton of people still like having the physical copies around though and I am with you on that one. Sometimes you dont want to fire up the computer and look around, when you can look at the catalog in the garage, on the crapper, etc...
    I wake up and I piss excellence.

    I could not disagree more. The price of the paper used to print these catalogs is down 30% in fact the paper mills are slow and ready to go out of business you can literaly name your price. As far as the printing costs, printers are in the same boat ( no pun intended) as the paper mills. You literally have entire printing plants with presses sitting idle right now.....in fact some have lights off in certain parts of the facility.

    **** my background is a paper and print buyer in the midwest. have been in the purchasing field working with these commodities for over 14 years and I manage a spend of about $34 million each year

    Not saying printing and mailing a catalog is free but you need to get stuff in front of peoples faces if you want them to buy it. Hell I read my Dana catalog and CP catalog each night...... I have a wish list a page long and pull the trigger on buying certain items when I have some free cash....

    If not a printed catalog how about updating the web site with all the current items offered and current prices. That would work for me.

    A simple phone call works pretty good!

    Pat, he recently started stocking the Rub Rail stuff, im sure the info will be added to their deal soon, with L&L closing theior doors, somebody had to step and offer the so cal boating industry the oddball parts, and from what I can tell Rex has stepped up in a large way and has become more of a kingpin with those oddball parts that they earlier did not offer, give em' some time and im sure things will be more clear!
    There is the economy too,...what employer wants to spend money on a book that will be given away for free, when the website clearly gets more views, if the site does not have it, a simple phone call will do just fine,
    Not being a cheerleader, but there is no Jegs or summit for this kind of genre, i for one am kinda glad to know that they have most everything I need when i need it, or well within a few working days!
    Markist, I think I know where my old book is, if I find it, I will mail it to you.
    Hope all is well, say hello to "DAYUM GINA" for us!

    I'm not knocking Rex Marine. I've always had the best service with them. There are only a few companies I do business with these days and it's all about the service. Rex Marine is one of them, Berkeley and CP Performance are the others. Oh yeah, there's Hi-Tech Performance, too. I think these are the best companies to do business with. Always ready to answer questions and help with information.
