Labour Day weekend is just a few hours away and West Marine have released some early sale deals that we are very happy to share with you.

Labor Day weekend is a great time to pick up a bargain on boating gear and West Marine’s Labor Day sale looks particularly good this year.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of discounts at the retail giant this weekend, and we’ve trawled through them to pick out what we think are the best of the best.

Most of their offers are live now and will remain so throughout the weekend but will only last until the products are sold out, so don’t hang around.

Read on for our guide to the biggest discounts on quality boating safety gear this Labor Day weekend…
