    I live in Miami and trying to locate a composite sheet to make my decking. It needs to be a            4 x 8 x 1/2 minnium and cost below $60 dollars. There is a place in Dania Joes Auto Marine sells Nida Core in a 3 x 7 sheet. I dont want to use plywood. All suggestions are greatky appreciated as I want to start this project soon.

    polyumac, bra! I paid about $21 a sheet and got 4 sheets a few months ago.
    But they gave it to us for dirt cheap. regular price is around 30 something a sheet.
    we use 6lb density foam for the decks. we did a layer of chop, a 1708, then another chop strand. on each side of the foam. super strong..... but we used perforated foam.
