I'd think that the addition of a "furring" strip could cause real problems in the marine environment. Condensation in colder climates, poor fits with flexing and a myriad of other problems. Look before leaping, but leap when you must.

Afet 4 years all is well here. I coated the back in West epoxy.
I lived aboard for a couple years, cooking creates a lot of moisture, no problems.

Saw the FRP panels today at HD-they've gone up to $32/.
Found myself more attracted to the "Thrifty White Board"- like its texture (and its price- 1/3 of FRP) better. Does the backside hold up on moisture? Is it something that could be sealed?
I plan to be able to take off the panels relatively easily (maybe) but I'd like to know how it would handle a humid/ temp changing environment.

Those FRP panels are great! I've used them many places in my boat. They even hold up outside quite well. I used them on the outside of my propane locker I built about 12 years ago. They are holding up just fine.
If you're not familiar with them, walk into the bathroom of your local McDonald's Burger joint - that's what's on the wall. You can get them at Home Depot for about $28. for a 4' x 8' sheet. They're about 1/8" thick and bendy enough to take most compound curves you will find on the inside of a boat.
I have used them on the inside of my boat also. Here's a link to the "How to" I have on my Frugal Mariner web-site. Just look at that page though - in some of the rest of it you may be encouraged to buy stuff. (I'm not selling the stuff - just affiliate sales - so you moderators can decide if I've crossed the "no advertising" policy line. If I have, I'm sorry, delete my post and I won't do it again.)

FRP panels are often used in coolers, commercial bathrooms and commercial kitchens. Call these guys D.W. Ross Company - Freezer, Cooler, Hardwoods, Windows, Doors and Much More. to see about getting frp prelaminated to plywood, foam core, or other substrates. The laminated panels are the way to go. These guys laminate their own panels. Ask for Danny. I have no connection with these guys other than I bought some FRP panels for another use once.
