My boat needs some floatation, and could anyone tell me where I could find some, or if you have any to sell? If you do please email me at thedogboat@wiktel.com Thanks!

I think what you need is called epifoam and comes in blocks that are used for dock floatation as well as boat applications. It can be cut to size very easily and marinas or dealerships may be able to help you out. If it is a closed area that needs floatation, you may be able to use the expandable foam, spray-in, insulation...the kind sold at lumber companies to seal larger gaps in construction. If you use a product of this sort remember to fill the void only 2/3 full as the expanding product will, and can, go way beyond where you want it to fill. If it does, it too can be pared back with a utility knife. Hope this helps out.

Foam gets is buoyancy from trapped air. If your foaming under a floor you will want a foam with a closed cell. A foam that isn't closed cell will suck up water in time. You can get sheets of foam (pink stuff)at Menard's. Theres also products that are 2 part mix that you pour into cavity's.

If you mean floatation because your boat sits too low in water, you won't help anything adding foam. That's just for a boat that capsizes and sink, it will give floatation and won't go under in a blink of an eye.
It would be better if you explain what you have in mind, and we can try to help you better.

Thanks

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
