on-line source for Interlux?

I don't have any distributors close to me for barrier coating and anti-fouling paints. I've decided to go with Interlux products - can anyone recommend a good online source with reasonable pricing and service?

In our area we can only get the two part Interlux products through a professional - they don't sell them direct to the general public (I suppose due to the potential dangers of the solvents if improperly used - OTOH I can go by a can of Xylene no problem???....) I don't know if the same restrictions apply in the US.

Anyhow we got ours from a local yacht repairer/painter whom we knew.

Found them on West Marine

I see them on the West Marine site - so must be available in US. Just looking to get best price/service.

Defender.com probably has them, but you are probably better off getting the stuff locally if you can, since the shipping will be expensive... hazmat and heavy IIRC.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Actually SD, I bought two gallons of Micron Extra from Defender last Spring. The UPS shipping from CT to RI was only 14.00 + - . . . total cost was still cheaper than the local supplier's best price.

Must have been shipped ground. That's not too bad, given the price of the stuff...
