Pre-laminated FRP (fiberglass) also works VERY well, with few of the drawbacks of Al or SS:
* no galvanic corrosion
* easy to work, compared to SS
If your looking for cheap, try to find scrap. Most FRP repair shops will have broken bits you can salvage.
I wouldn't real consider either carbon steel or plywood, when there are other easy choices.
