Default Flotation foam, cost?

I am getting to the point that I need to buy some 2 part foam. Where is the best, cheapest place to get this. I am looking for 2 lb. foam for flotation only. And any other help with this. And no, I will not be using water bottles.

Just google: 2 part marine floatation foam.

All kinds of sellers pop up.
Just gotta let your fingers do the walking.

Be care with that stuff, too much inside of an enclosed cell and there’s always the possibility of blowing out the hull depending on hull thickness and structural integrity.

I’d recommend you take 2 ozs of A & B, mix in a gallon container and sit back to get a close estimate of expansion.
Then figure out how many square feet
you going to be filling and have at it.

If you don’t inject/pour quite enough into the cavity, more can always be added.

Not sure of cheapest but check EBay as well.
Just make sure you have it in correspondence from seller the product is within manufacturer usage date.

Yes, looks like this is cheaper, I was looking at FSI, but they list their kits as a 10 gallon kit, us composites shows it as a 80 lb. kit. Looks to be the same?
