    There is a place in Santa Monica formerly known as Hastings Plastics that carried it when they were in business. The name has changed to Santa Monica Plastics, and its location changed too (I am not even sure what connection, if any, exists between the two), but worth a call.

    I saw some at the local Fiberlay supply in San Diego. Seems like they might have a store in the LA area. Depending on use and need some are approved for different things or type of floatation etc know your need. Not sure if the foam I saw was approved to what specks etc etc. I wound up buying the high dollar stuff that was CG approved to keep the resale and insurance folks happy.

    I bought it online from two sources. One was Ebay. They both worked fine. There is an issue with the Ebay product. I ended up with an extra kit. After is sat around for a month or so, one of the bottles sprung a leak. No problem, I contacted them, and they sent me a replacement kit. I left it on a table for a month or so. Guess what, it sprung a leak and the poly bag also sprung a leak. That makes a bit of a mess. If you actually use it it works fine. All of it was the 4lb stuff. I used it to install a fuel tank and do some repairs on a Whaler.

    Just as a tip. The foam will not actually ad any additional flotation to the boat (meaning that it won't let you carry more weight).

    It is only effective during an emergency,
    hole in the boat or forgot the plug situation.

    Although it seemed to suck up alot of shock and vibration when I used it in my 16' tin boat

    Pretty sure you will want to use closed cell foam for that.

    RevChem in Costa Mesa is where I got mine from.
    2lb closed cell.
    I did it simply for piece of mind if an “oh shit” moment happens. The sound dampening qualities really surpassed my expectations. Added rigidity to the deck as well. I have 4 gallons of the stuff in my little 16’ skiff.

    Quick update I found a place local to me called Sherfab Unlimited they are located in Ontario Ca. Off the 60fwy and Grove. They have just about everything you need for fiberglass repairs including gelcoat, resin, fiberglass, epoxy, 2part foam, west systems products ect.... Very helpful friendly staff and good prices too. Thanks again for all your help.
