The Minney family has been running Minney’s Yacht Surplus in Costa Mesa for well over 50 years, with Ernie Minney at the helm since he and his family completed their circumnavigation in 1970. So right now seemed like a good time for a break. But it is just a break. Ernie sent us the following note:
“We will be closed the entire year of 2020 for remodeling. My staff has departed, and there is no one to handle sales or shipping.”
“Projects include the repaving of the back parking lot, new restrooms, cleaning and painting sail containers, building new spar racks, and better display spaces and lighting in the lower part of the store.
“Sorry for the inconvenience. I am reading your emails but don’t have the time to answer all of them. If you have a refund coming, want to cash out of Minney Money, etc., I’ll get back to you. Have a great year.”
