Live in Chapel Hill but will be in Wilmington this weekend. Where is the cheapest place to buy a gallon or two?

West Marine, oh you said cheapest didn't you.
Some auto parts places have it, surely down in Wilmington.
Sorry not to specific.

West Marine in Raleigh off Capitol or in Wilmington near Wrightsville Beach.
Overton in Raleigh off Wake Forest road may have some, but they are usually slim building type supplies.
Marine Warehouse Center in Wilmington may have some or can probably point you to a better supplier in the Wilmington area.
Do forget that you will need PVA or something to overcoat and seal the surface for the gel coat to cure, it does not fully cure when exposed to air.

Kraft hardware has a very good Gel Coat (white only) they are on Wrightsville ave, directly across the parking lot from West Marine (behind Harris Teeter)... Ask anyone, its the best hardware in/on/near Wrightsville Beach.
I wanna say it was about $30-35 a gallon, maybe more but still less then half price of WM
