When I chose to build from plans I have a friend in the boat repair business. The plan was to save a buck getting supplies wholesale. This isn't working out too well. My West System epoxy I got from him was a deal for West System. But that stuff is more expensive than the MAS I can get from CLC. Now the cloth I got is 3 times more expensive that what CLC offers. I was happy with what I got from CLC. Is there a reason for the high cost of the other stuff? Are there higher quality brands that we don't need?
