11 gallons between the main and genset alone. Long exhaust run. And I only use -100 for that. Adds up.

Reminds me that I also got a nice rebate from WM this past year, which I dutifully clipped all the bar codes and mailed them in. Got a $50+ check in the mail a couple of months later.

30 gals?!?! There are rumored to be some shops that use 90-100+ 55 gal drums of AF in the fall when winterizing boats for clients! Now that is a lot of AF! But 30 gals for one boat is still a lot too!

If they run out of the item it goes on backorder and is filled when it comes in. If it's a closeout item and they run out of it, it will not be reordered. For the 2013 sale, all shipping is suspended until March 25...
FYI, I decided that I can't wait until March 25 for Defender to ship my bottom paint. Since I was able to scrape the hull today, I could be painting by the end of the week if I get the paint quickly. I found my paint (Vivid White) at Jamestown for $195 with free shipping (vs. Defender's current price of $210 plus about $13 shipping). I don't know what Defender will have it for during their warehouse sale, but Jamestown's price was attractive enough to get me to pull the trigger on this.

FYI, Jamestown's free shipping special ends tomorrow.

After my ebay purchase of Magma grill and this paint purchase, there's not a whole lot left for me to buy from Defender - Magma grill cover, harness, tether, strobe. I'll see how Defender's prices are for the sale and consider purchasing then.

I actually priced the varnish at all the online vendors and its within a couple of dollars. Some, by the way looked much cheaper, but they added the hazardous material fee at the checkout. Worse, to get it shipped by 2 day UPS was going to cost more than the varnish itself!!

I am going to stop in WM this weekend, when I'm commissioning and buy it off the shelf. I will pay absolutely whatever they are selling it for. No doubt.
Sorry, I missed this comment, and yeah, your scenario is a pretty dang good reason for needing it that day. I'd put this in my "nuclear" category.

Hey, f you don't have to wait, great. I myself have indulged in the immediate gratification that the brick and mortar stores allow, but that doesn't mean it would'a been a "deal breaker" if they weren't available (unless I was varnishing ). This is really a convenience issue. Do I like the fact that we have the brick and mortar stores around? You bet. Do I think they're 100% necessary in this age of shopping at your finger tips, not at all. JMO

As far as the Atuona comment goes, it was an a_n_a_l_o_g_y.

Sounds like good choices. Next year look for December specials. I have stuff I am ordering on March 21...we will see how long it takes to arrive.
