Re: Best/cheapest place to get G10 grp boards?

Having done a LOT of work witjh G10 and Balsa

G10 SUCKS for core work the Balsa is much better and will in fact last forever if you fill and drill the holes

The G10 is heavy REALLY hard to cut and way to rigid to conform to shapes

Having done a deck with sections using G10 in areas were i presumed it would be better there was ZERO differance

On the other hand G10 tube is the way to go for shaft log and sterring tube repiar/replace jobs as the tube is PERFECT

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
