Source of plastic bags Answered

I'm planning to use laminated plastic bags to skin a boat but I need a few hundred or thousand bags.  Where does one get that many bags?

I didn't know ABS was soluble in acetone! If I can get my hands on some ABS I'll try that.

You will have a hard time melting the bag together to form a watertight seal.
Although a different approach and proper ventilation is required ABS plastic dissolved in aceton might be easier.
I thin mix penetrates and seal well, while a thicker mix is good to add a few coats.

A better question would be is that the right material to skin a boat? Salt or freshwater use? UV protection? Resistance to damage? Cost? Delamination or degradation over time? Grocery or garbage bags...etc.
