Default RE: looking for blue foam

I tried to find some locally but all I could get was pink. It seemed to work fine for me when building 'rigger sponsons. The problem was that I had to buy a 4 x 8 foot sheet of 2" to get what I wanted.
Try a Home Depot or Lowe's to see what they have. You might be able to get a damaged sheet fairly cheap.

Check with local building contracters.They sometimes have pieces to small for their use and just pitch them in a dumpster.

Lowes have the Blue foam. Not sure if it is chain wide or not.

Home Depot has the pink

both pink and blur foam are basically the same...i think the blue stuff is a little denser, but heavyer...both foams would work great for the same applications anyway...
