SD - is the PVC board you're speaking of also called "PVC Foam Board"?

The problem with starboard is that the sealants tend not to stick to it, so it always leaks.
I would recommend using 1/2 PVC board. It is pretty UV resistant, and epoxy and sealants both stick to it. The stuff I have is designed for the sign industry, and it is really pretty good stuff to work with, as you can work it with normal woodworking tools fairly easily.

|xsboats||When using starboard, you can seal around fasteners by countersinking around the pilot hole for the screw on the backside of the starboard piece before caulking. This will leave an o-ring of sealant around the fastener. If you need to seal around the edges, you can cut a groove inset from the edge on the back , all the way around , to accomplish the same.|

I need to fabricate some stuff for the cockpit area using 1/2" white sheet plastic. Want it to be UV resistant and pretty stiff; but also need to be able to glue it and use sealant.
What's the best material for this other than Starboard/Seabord etc -- which I understand do not take well to adhesives or sealants.
Links to recommendations would help.
