Casting deck material

7 posts in this topic

What type of wood can you use for making a casting deck on your boat? Do you have to treat it with something, if so what?

Thanks

You can cover plywood with epoxy resin.

Do a search on this, it has been cover sooo many times, in fact it's one of the most asked questions.

Thnaks for the advice, I remembered seeing this type of topic in the past, and so I did do a search before I posted, but I didnt get any related results. Maybe I should now do a search for "marine plywood."

Thanks again both of you for the help.

Well I searched for plywood, and got a bunch of great results, but I still have one question. I have decided that if I do this, I will be using AC plywood, and treat it with fiberglass resin, the question that I have is, when I found the plywood, there was ACX, and AC2, does it matter wich one of those I use? I am not sure what the X, or 2 stand for.

Not sure about AC2, but in ACX the X is for exterior.

AC2 sounds so much like ACQ that it would probably be a treated plywood. ACQ is the type of treated lumber that eats aluminum or any other metals that are not specialy coated.

There are new treated wood products out there that are less caustic but most treated plywoods aren't designe for horizontal applications.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
