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



Having done big area upside down


There is really no choice on a cal 29 as three is no structural inner skin attachment

This should also dispel legends about what makes a deck stiff



I can say with complete certainty the block size and ability to score the material is a huge plus as your NOT getting it up there in one shot





As much as love my friend G10 and placed it in core in areas i convinced myself it would be better



If you squeegee out a tight inner shin its incredibly strong





having bolted the stanchions back in the G10 area



And the mooring bit in the balsa area i can assure you you would never be able to tell and cannot compress the balsa

The mooring bit has held the boat through two hurricanes without so much as a bolt getting lose









For seacocks and stern-tube G10 is clearly the best material

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