Hypalon - Any inexpensive mail order places?

I'm in Orange County, California. Anyone know of a place that has Hypalon at a reasonable price locally or on the web? The cheapest local shop wants $16 for a square foot. I'm looking for the medium gray color for an older Avon Rover boat.

Hi Bryan,

Wow, that is generous! I held my nose and paid $16.00 for 1 square foot of perfectly matching grey fabric which is plenty to do a couple small patches in visible areas. However, the boat has some areas that are getting worn where the wooden floor has been rubbing against the transom and a few areas along the sides. So I wanted to reinforce those worn areas but was rather shocked at the fabric price. The most worn area in the back needs about a 4"x40" strip which is more than I would feel comfortable taking from someone. (And probably more than anyone wants to give away!) I don't mind paying for it but I hate to pay what appears to be an outrageous price that the local shops are charging. I found online a place that sells black Hypalon for $32 a yard from 54" rolls. That comes out to about 13.5 square feet per yard which is $2.37 per square foot. Maybe I am missing something but I would not think that grey Hypalon at the boat store should cost 675% more than black Hypalon. I may just end up gettting a yard of the black which would be more then enough to put strips over all the existing strips along the floor line that are a bit worn. But I would rather use matching grey color if I could find it at a reasonable price.

Someone just gave me this link:

http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product_l...1034&src=champ

Prices much better than what I've found on my own so far (except for the black Hypalon I found for $32 a yard) but they have many colors. If anyone knows of an even better place, please let me know. Thanks!

We use quite a bit and get ours from these guys as well. We also use the Stabond adhesive from them and are very happy with both.
