It's ok hellosailor... you are preaching to the choir. My tongue in cheek jab wasn't at your tape choice but at the vendors attempt to gussy up the product by adding "marine" to the title. I had looked up the tape on 3M's web site which calls it "Scotch® Weather Resistant Masking Tape 225 Silver". There is no mention of "marine" in the name. From your previous post, I was expecting a $10.00 price tag. Seeing that a 3rd party vendor at Amazon (my first attempt at searching for it) had listed the tape with "marine" added in the title for $40.00 prompted me to post the jab here. Doing some more shopping around shows the average price is actually closer to $25.00 a roll. Some places have lower price but higher "handling" charge.
