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

Caleb- it looks like you've got your answer(s), but just in case you'd like yet another opinion :-), I redid the core of about 2' x 1' on a portion of my cabin top adjacent to a length of jib track that in hindsight really wished I'd used something synthetic rather than end-grain balsa. It is bomb proof and looks great (now), but took tons of my time for essentially no gain. I found that from a local shipwright. For G10, if you ever really do need it (I've used it in several places for backing plates and other things), I bought 1/8" and 1/4" sheets (1' x 2') just from Amazon, which looks comparable to crossnail laminates in price (considerably cheaper than Mcmaster-Carr, Jamestown Dist or Interstate Plastics. Good luck with your project!
