Where to buy Hypalon adhesive & solvent in SF Bay Area?

I need to patch some pin holes created by fishing hooks (see my other thread).

Where can I buy the appropriate adhesive & solvent in the Bay Area? Does West Marine carry these in their stores?

I am thinking of buying POLY MARINE Hypalon/PVC Adhesives, as well as Toluene. I have patches already (came with the boat). What else do I need?

I think most of us in the USA who need small amounts get it from NRS. I got Clifton adhesive this time. I did all the repairs on my tubes with stabond and it's delaminating now two years later.

Sal's Inflatable Repair in Alameda carries Weaver glue. West Marine only has the one part stuff. I pick up from Sal's or mail order from NRS.

I did a repair on my Air Dock last weekend, and bought the hypalon repair kit at West Marine.
4 days and still holding.

Oh, and solvent: TAP plastic still has MEK in quart (and I think gallon) size. I ordered toluene from NRS (I think.) Acetone you can get anywhere.
