Answer: You pay more for it. I use Petit bottom paint for Inflatables. It has worked really well up here on Cape Cod. I just bought a new quart, it was $83 at West Marine, then I went to my local Marina and found it for $66. I don't mind paying a little more for the convenience (and we have some knowledgeable employees at the one I go to) but 25% more than another brick and mortar. I was not happy (fortunately I had not opened it and was able to return it.
