I don't want to turn this into a rant but be careful when ordering after hours or on weekends as their fullfilment company that handles that traffic never posted my order. It's kind of tough to find water ski gear two days before Christmas in MI. Didn't think it would have been a problem, from everything I've seen here they come highly recommended. Merry Christmas everyone! Joe

I ordered registration numbers from Overton's. They come prespaced with a clear film that pulls off afterwards.

It took several phonecalls and several weeks to get the order.

I later ordered a ski belt and mirror held on by a suction cup. No problem with this order.

FWIW, I've ordered on many different occasions from Overton's, and have been satisfied with the results every time.

Ditto! No problems in the few times I used them. I usually get my skeggards from them.

I've usually had great luck with Overton's.

As a caution, watch shipping costs with any catalog/online store. I ordered something cheap from Overtons ($10-15) and they wanted to charge me $10 for UPS shipping to Alaska. I called them back and said that at that price, forget it. I asked if they could send PRIORITY Mail (the ole 2-pound pak) for $3.40 and the salesperson said sure, though they don't normally do it, but they took it to the post office and I got it 2 days later. They made the effort.

Now, the Whaler webpage, clothing & things for sale by Anheuser (sp) Marketing. I ordered some stuff in October I didn't need (we always order stuff we don't need). Cost of goods was $45, but from the webpage you couldn't find shipping costs (I should have called). I expected $15 shipping. Well, the bill came in and it was $37 dollars shipping. That's BS. So I called the Marketing company and they said, sorry, that what UPS charges. Be forewarned, unless you know the shipping costs ahead of time, DON'T DO IT. I recommended that they include shipping costs on their webpage. I don't think I'll order from them again.
