Re: West Marine no longer matching prices...
Yes and right now. I just ran out of varnish, as I underestimated the amount I would need for my cockpit table. I need enough for at least one more coat and would like to do 3 more. With a min of 24 hours between coats, I don't want to wait for ground shipping. I launch one week from Monday!
I actually priced the varnish at all the online vendors and its within a couple of dollars. Some, by the way looked much cheaper, but they added the hazardous material fee at the checkout. Worse, to get it shipped by 2 day UPS was going to cost more than the varnish itself!!
I am going to stop in WM this weekend, when I'm commissioning and buy it off the shelf. I will pay absolutely whatever they are selling it for. No doubt.
Sorry, I missed this comment, and yeah, your scenario is a pretty dang good reason for needing it that day. I'd put this in my "nuclear" category.
