Make them yourself... pretty simple to do and fairly inexpensive compared to buying them. You can also try contacting your local boat yards and ask them if they have any scrap.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

As Dog said the least expensive way is to make your own. Alternately you can buy sheet stock of either GPO3 or G-10. GPO3 is a polyester resinated & poltruded fiberglass sheet, and just for you, that come in RED. G-10 is an epoxy based poltruded fiberglass sheet. McMaster Carr sells both GPO3 and G-10 but both are very expensive..

I can get the G10 in 1/2 for 35 a square ft from AIN plastic

The price is all over the place and you have to shop around

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

Check your boat club garbage. Seriously. Anyone who has cut a hatch or a cut-out for a circular instrument will have created all you need in most cases. Then a scroll saw and some finishing with a Dremel will do you.
