Sorry to thread jack, but same question for sheets of Ethafoam.

No offense to bot outfitters, but that stuff has got to be available cheaply somewhere more industrial like.

I love it when I see cracked boat in the trash, still full of foam. One of those finds will last me several years.

Not sure if this is considered ethafoam or how the price compares, but it's a start.

Closed Cell Foam

From what I can tell this is pretty close to the foam that comes in boat outfitting.
And so according to this the prices at the store arent all that bad.

try spa cover reupholstery companies as they use foam products to the make the covers and often will sell you what you need for cheap.
