[B]Vancouver Area Suppliers[/B]

This info is only for the benefit of the members living in the Vancouver area. I have discovered a great supplier for epoxy, polyester, fiberglass fabrics, core materials - everything you need when building or repairing a boat. It's Ultra-Lux Plastics in Richmond. They are on River Road a block east of the River Rock Casino.

I thought they had closed shop years ago but was recently advised they were still going. I've bought a fair amount of stuff since - balsa core, epoxy, fabrics etc. and they have by far the best prices I've found locally - 20% to 50% less than others - $18 for 4 liters of acetone for example. The guy who owns it is a real eccentric - kind of a mad scientist - and you best allot a fair bit of time for his yakking but he is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, seems dead honest, has great prices and throws in a bunch of extras when you spend a couple of $hundred - a dozen liter sized measuring/mixing cups and stir sticks today (about $1.75 each at most places) and he measures VERY generously when cutting yardage of glass fabric.

Give him a try when you need any of that type stuff - he has lots of things I never knew about like a fiber/foam board core material that is the cheapest core I have found and as light as anything else as well.

I have no personal interest here, just a very satisfied customer.

P.S. One of the best parts of this whole experience was that it was a girl who told me about it. The times they are achangin' at long last.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
