1/8" aluminum diamond plate strength ?

2 posts in this topic

The side steps on my boat trailer need replacing (fore and aft of each fender). I was considering replacing them with aluminum diamond plate. It only needs to span about an 8-9 inch gap between underlying support rails. I realize it will flex some, but would 1/8 inch thick be strong enough ? Does anyone know where to find some "leftovers" that might be had inexpensively ? I'd need 2 pieces at 9"x34" and 2 at 9"x26". thanks...

Home Depot and Fleet Farm sell it in small pieces. I believe that it would be strong enough in that short of a span, or maybe you could bump up the thickness just to be sure.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
