    I want some 3/8 high-density foam panels suitable for epoxy use I can use to build up some areas before I epoxy/glass over them...Does anyome know if they sell these at Home depot/Lowes? I've heard that many kinds of high-density foam is okay choice for boat-building..I don't need strength here just substrate....

    The pink and blue styrofoams are closed cell, ground contact. Epoxy works well over them. As whether it is appropiate for your application, the information is not enough to answer

    Okay..pink or blue is closed cell...it's not going to be placed in the bilges or in contact with chemicals so these type closed cell panels should work then I think..thanks Gonzo!
