Small rant: I like the idea of tef gel, but I have to order it....so not available today.
Also: why is the exact same stuff sold in Europe literally 1/2 the price of what is charged here in the USA?!?!
1oz tube from Germany (not including shipping of course) = $11
1oz tube from Jamestown and similar = $20
My cousins, who are over visiting and helping us re-build our wood floors, are stunned at the prices for all boating supplies out here in the USA. Where they work, rebuilding wood boats in Holland, many supplies (like varnish, flooring etc) are 1/2 to 1/3 of the cost compared to here. That's including the 17% VAT! I think that us sailing/boating types are getting ripped off. Of course it could be a matter of supply and demand.
All that said, I think I will go with blue loc-tite since i can pick it up at lowes
