A am currently re-furbishing the deck on my CAL 35 and will need lots of epoxy and hardener. Can anyone direct me to a source which might be cheaper than the West Systems epoxy at $66.00 a gallon at Boat/U.S.? Thanks, Bill Kidd

Check www.raka.com. At one time they had very reasonable prices. If you can live with vinyl ester, www.fiberglasssupply has it at a very good price.

I used <a href=http://www.raka.com>Raka</a> to supply me with Kevlar and epoxy to refinish/stengthen the bottom of our dinghy. Great service, good price. If you want to see the project, <a href=http://www.vonwentzel.net/Dinghy/>click here</a>.

based on older salts advise, ive used products from "Ameron" (sp?) with great success and a 1/3 the price of typical west marine/boat us/boaters world merchandise. saw the larger yards in San Fran Bay area using the stuff on fishing trawlers and larger sailboats .the huge chemical company has a web page (use google.com to search) so you can get the specs/data sheets. They produce a wide array of commercial chemicals targeted for commercial marine applications. no pretty labels or fancy adds in the mags, just excellent products well below mainstream retail pricing. i used one of their epoxy barrier coat products on my 34'' and would not go back to pettit or interlux (after 30yrs experience w/both)
