Could you explain this better? What are you doing with the wood screws? Zinc plated or more like deck screws? How many screws and what size?

Are you using ACX or BCX (surely not CDX)? Just one thickness of plywood or more? Epoxy or polyester resin? How many layers of glass over the wood? What weight of fabric?
