Thanks for the advice, I've already got the wood cut but sure enough in a couple of years they'll need to be done again! Plastic maybe a great option next time.

Epoxy is the way to go. That's what the guys who make plywood boats use. It's generally not UV stable so keep it out of the sun or you need to coat it with something else afterwards.

Thanks Nugent. For me totally new material, worth learning about it. Anything that last for long in marine applications is always interesting!

What's foamex like to work with say to make a dry box would you glue it together with sikaflex or marine flex or does a pvc glue work

Cheers

Thanks
found this supplier east coast resin supplies loads of info plywood repairs etc

Foamex is great, I use it for side panels, seat panels etc, but it doesn't work in a load bearing situation. For seat bases than span an opening, I use this.. http://www.vetus.com/v-quipment/mate...m-x-12-mm.html

Amazing material, and can be glued, screwed, routered etc.
