I've used 3/4" Black PVC as a backing plate for things like a through bolt for mounting brackets. It works very well and lasts forever if not exposed to sunlight. Stronger than PE and more resistant to creep. I've seen starboard used as a backing plate for an outboard bracket, after a few years it cracked.
