    I've decided to toss all the old flotation foam that was in my boat and replace it with new material. Is there a preferred source in western Washington for getting flotation foam at a reasonable price?

    You can get some at Revchem, Fiberglass Supply, Composites One, or Fiberlay.

    West Marine may have it, but the cost will be higher.

    Good advice. That's where I buy epoxy and fiberglass. They have a store in Tacoma in the industrial area, but I suppose you could order it and have it delivered.

    Tacoma is close enough, and I could use the excuse to see what's hanging around the marina there. Thanks
