Anyone know where i can get hold of some high density foam?
I need to make a wet box to mount a transducer in my kayak.

Cheers

Para rubber might be a start?

I got some from payless plastics at the valley - they had some offcuts in there a while back, let me know if you still need some, I may have some leftovers!

I went to plastics place a couple weeks ago, they only have the low density foam (like a sponge).

I've looked in bunnings & mitre10 found there kneel pads but they're all rough on one side. Not goid for sticking bits together to form a water tight seal.
No para rubber in new Plymouth either.

I'm looking at childrens swim floats at the mo, but was looking for a more cost effective solution.

I've got some scraps of high density foam I have used for similar tasks. If you get stuck give me a holler and I'll send you some.

With these strong winds there's a good chance of me having a tramp in the garden when I get home tonight!
