Welcome to the San Diego Marine Exchange, a landmark for quality marine products since 1950 and parent company of Downwind Marine (est. 1976) and Sailing Supply (est. 1972). Our stores make up a complete chandlery dedicated to finding you the right equipment and supplies at the right price to meet your vessel's cruising, racing, maintenance or safety requirements.
San Diego Marine Exchange focuses on your vessel's boatyard and operating requirements, including engine-related parts and running gear, electrical products, pumps and replacement parts, plumbing fittings, sandpaper and other abrasives, and cleaning products. Inventory also includes anchoring and docking equipment, fishing gear, chairs and pedestals, deck and hull hardware, ventilation materials, lighting products, tools and fasteners.
Downwind Marine is the first place to go to for marine supplies if you're trying to turn your cruising dreams into a reality. Looking for boating gear and supplies for your cruise down the West Coast of Mexico or beyond? Before you sail away on your yacht, make sure it's equipped for bluewater conditions. Whether your cruise takes you around the bay, around the world, or if you're just sitting in port, now you can shop for the gear you need from just about any place on the planet.
Sailing Supply is the source for quality sailboat hardware, rigging and technical apparel for competitive, performance and recreational sailors. Our staff of active and knowledgeable sailors has helped outfit racing and cruising sailboats for novice and professional sailors of all ages, from club racers and weekenders to Olympic, World and America's Cup champions. We carry a very broad and well-stocked inventory of top-notch marine products for one design, one-off and other sailboats of all types and sizes. We also have a Rigging Shop to meet your custom requirements for halyards, lifelines, running and standing rigging. If you have an architectural job, we can help with that, too.

Propspeed is a foul release coating that is designed to prevent marine growth from bonding to metal surfaces below the water line. The Propspeed system is made up of a two component Etching Primer, which bonds to the substrate and a Clear Top Coat, which provides an ultra-smooth outer layer. It is Propspeed’s unique combination of tenacious adhesion with a primer system, and the repellent of marine growth with the clear coat that makes Propspeed the leader in running gear coatings today.
The application of Propspeed gives boat owners two simple advantages. More speed. Less fuel. Propspeed will effectively protect running gear from marine growth for 1 to 2 years, requiring no maintenance. Any marine growth that does attach can be easily wiped away with a soft, wet cloth. Propspeed is different because it is slick, not toxic, and it really works!
The Propspeed system is best used on propellers, shafts, struts, rudders, trim tabs, keel coolers, bow and stern thrusters, and other underwater metal or running gear. Specify Propspeed for your next haul out!

Technical and Sales Support
Propspeed contains no copper, tin or any other toxic substances harmful to marine life.
Should last at least a year, but many customers report two years service life, depending on the marine environment in which the boat is moored in, and how often it is used.
No maintenance needed.
Reduces the time spent cleaning, and costs by increasing speed and reducing fuel consumption.
