although I like traditions I think "boat supplies" has advantages like
beeing more specific and descriptive. Having read all the different
opinions and the wikipedia articles in 2 languages about ship chandlers
it seems that the term has a fairly broad meaning and not every ship
chandler would do boat supplies for small boats for example which was
the OPs main objective.
