    For all you boatbuilders, go to your nearest boat builder and pick through the garbage you will find cutouts from the mold process that will work for decking and all sorts of places you would use plywood. Stop using plywood its heavy

    can't agree more with this !

    composites are the way to fly - only draw back is,they will not hold screws...there's a certain "technique" to take care of this inherit problem...
