Boat Used Part Search (aka BUPS), in keeping with its mission to: “Provide a free service to keep US boaters on the water & parts out of the landfill by matching buyers with sellers of used, re-built, NOS, vintage, NLA and clearance boat parts”, is proud to announce the launch of its new BUPS Search Composer.

"We're excited to launch this new feature as it allows users to find the parts they need more effectively and with reduced effort," said Boat Used Part Search founder, Doug McQuilken.

The self-service editor allows for: access to both online & offline boat parts; the creation of daily alerts; utilization of an integrated boating lexicon and the ability to immediately validate search criteria. This new feature was developed based on positive feedback from a prototype and is now live at This page also has links to the recommended YouTube Tutorials as well as to BUPS content such as About, Press, Testimonials, etc.

Over the past six years BUPS has assisted numerous boaters in locating elusive parts from a fragmented marketplace and has received feedback like this:

Lori just wanted to be more productive searching:
“BUPS has been a fantastic and efficient search tool! It saves hours of clicks and searches for specific sails that I’ve been looking for. It automatically sends alerts every couple days so I’m always the first to make offers on particular items. It’s been a huge time saver!”

Tom wanted to save money and gained unanticipated benefits:
“I’m doing an extensive refit on a 42′ sailboat, and have saved thousands on items I’ve been able to source thru BUPS that I wouldn’t have found otherwise. I’ve also made acquaintance with others doing similar projects in Seattle and San Diego that I would have never have met otherwise.”
