PB read the thread about New Floor.

DO NOT use treated lumber with aluminum boats.

A sheet of marine plywood will cost between $ 60 to $ 90.

Youngblood Lumber in Minneapolis was the least expensive place I found for marine grade plywood.

Surface Tension

The treated will react with aluminum, so if you use treated put a rubber gasket at all contact points. You'll need stainless steel fasteners too.

You can use plywood and spar varnish. Spar varnish is designed for boats in that is stays pliable and will not crack. Epoxy resin is also used as a water proofing. Its not as pliable as spar varnish buts it harder, its more expensive too.

Marine plywood in my opinion isn't overkill in the longevity sense but its overkill cosmetically. It still needs water proofing. I don't think you'll see much Marine grade plywood in most of todays boats. Dashs and wooden seats made from marine grade plywood are being replaced with plastic and vinyl coverings. Plywood is classified by grade thats according to on how many plies it has , voids, knots, wood type and glues.

Consider Marine plywood a cabinet grade plywood with some rot and water resistance(still needs to be sealed though)with no voids, knots and a higher number of plies.

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
