Check with a company called Composites One. I know of one in the Rhode Island area. I know that probably doesn't help much but I think they are nationwide. Maybe in Goergia or South Carolina. Hope that helps a little.

i use US composites and Fiberglast and have real good luck with both. seem to have best prices at US composites. one tip though, try and find a local source for resins. they are very heavy (aprox. 8 LBS/Gal) and expensive to ship. Fiberglast has a great on line learning center that has been very useful to me. they also have a forum board for more interactive help.

I bet an Apache could spare some. Just kidding, after the cops party and the Apache videos I have a new respect for them, even greater than before.

No, but they fly level over waves like one If you have not seen the movie, you owe yourself the experience.

Seeman fiberglass carries everything you need. Cloth, laminating & finishing resins, Duratech finishes. They are in Harahan, a stones throw from the Huey P. Long bridge over the Misssissippi.
