I am in the sign business. We use corrugated plastic for inexpensive outdoor signs. (political signs, etc.) It comes in 4' x 8' sheets in thicknesses up to 1/2" in several colors. Standard sheets are 4mm, about $20. "Corroplast" is the brand name most often used. You can get it at most any sign shop. Can't imagine why you would want to use it in your fish house though?

Another option is Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Paneling (FRP). Its available in 4x8 sheets, approximatley 1/8" thick or so. White is the typical color although they may have some other options. Menards & Home Depot carry it.

The main benefit is it will not absorb any kind of moisture at all, its easy to wipe down and keep clean, and the white color reflects a ton of light.

I have heard people using this on the outside of thier shacks, waterproof and very, very light, plus its alot stronger than you think.

J.R. Johnson Greenhouse Supply sells corrugated twinwall polycarbonate panels. Has an R value slightly better than single pane glass, 2 or less.

I guess I should have metioned I don't want to have to take out a second mortgage on my house to be able to afford it...$85 a sheet is a little out of my price range... grin.gif

I thought there was a product that was fairly cheap and maybe a recycled or byproduct of something else?

I think Hanson is talking about "back splash", that goes behind sinks in commercial applications. Like this!

Ironically, I was given this stuff I used around my garage sink by a friend that was building a fish house from a pop up camper frame. It is a work in progress, but he is going to use it for the whole interior of house. He got it from his job site, when they did some demo work on a hotel!

Good stuff, I would recommend it!

The entire interior of my wheel house is done with the FRP that Hanson mentioned. I got it at Menards and I think it is made from recycled milk jugs and things like that. I think it was about $20 for a 4x8 sheet.

Shackbash Sorry, but I went fishing for four days. It's the same stuff.

Just don't use FRP on the outside of the fish house because it's not UV protected. Epoxy and polyester resins (used to bind the glass) start breaking down when exposed to UV light. Eventually it will yellow, get brittle and break down.

There are fiberglass pannels out there that will reflec UV rays. The RV industry uses several different styles. In fact, you may get lucky and find some at an RV junk yard.

Just my $0.02 smile.gif

The outside of my wheel house is gel coated fiberglass and is very easy to maintain.

There's nothing wrong with Gel coated glass. BUT, you need to use the stuff that's made for exterior use, and I'm sure that's what you have.

I want to make sure that people know that not all fiberglass (even gel coated) is created equal. It must contain UV inhibiters or it will break down. frown.gif

It's the type they make service bodies for trucks out of. You can buy it in flat sheets also.

I don't know if this will get zapped or not. The place that sells them is Hayfield Industries in Hayfield Iowa. My wheel house was made by them.

I think I have heard it called that before. It seems to work well in my drop down. This winter will only be it's second season though.

Is there anything you can do for the edges to make it look seemless?

There are joints that go between the sheets in the ceiling and walls and there are pieces that you put where the walls and ceiling meet that put them together with a nice curved look. The store that sells the FRP should have all the trim parts. I used the joiners in the walls and ceiling and just used white 100% silicone everywhere else. That way, if I ever want to remove some sections to run more wire or something, I can just slit the silicone and pull the panels out. Another reason that I used silicone was to keep moisture confined to the inside of the ice house instead of letting it get into the interior of the walls.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.
    • CigarGuy
      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
