Tis the season to be jolly and for West Marine to raise its prices before the new catalog comes out. I expected a little bit of a price increase but $40 on a $159 tri-color (already grossly overpriced for a plastic light fixture) and $20 for a $70 starboard bow light (also grossly overpriced to start.) I did not shop long, nor will I be fast to return without first checking out every other possible option.
By the way, the price increases have already taken place. If you go out to the web site the new prices have been loaded even though the "2011" catalog still has several weeks to run.
