Where to get large quantity of PVC material?

I'm attempting a repair job on a beater raft and I need about 10 feet of PVC material to do it. Where can I get this without getting robbed? Saw some on NRS but it was a small amount and ridiculously expensive.

Would a local hardware store carry this stuff?

Are you talking PVC pipe?

Lowes has a ton for cheap.

Try calling Andy & Bax out of Portland. I don't know what the damage is going to be like, just that they have leads.

They have large rolls of the aire fabric in 3' wide swaths. Most of their pricing is same or comparable to nrs and they sell in 1'x3' increments

Wait this might be 70" just like Nrs sells. Call them and get a confirmation i speak out of my ass sometimes

You may want to contact either Aire or Jacks plasics and see if they have any remnants they would part with
