1994 Stern Gas Tank/Battery Panel Material...

Does anyone know what type of plastic is used on the 91-94 PS190 rear panel that covers the gas tank/battery in the stern? I just bought a new restoration project and I need to make a new panel.

Would you try and source the same plastic? It seems a shame to use wood (though it may be easier to make the carpet adhere to a thin plywood than the plastic). Any other bright ideas?

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

I believe it's 1/4" Starboard. Don't use plywood, you'll regret it when it starts to rot. Permatex Headliner and Carpet Adhesive will work great to get carpet to stick to Starboard

Thanks for taking the time Miss Rita. Now that I have the name I'll see if I can find the material over the winter. The material is pretty pricey in Canada. The new project has a lot of wood. The floor and hull are great. That back panel and a couple of seat bases are shot. I'm going to do my best to avoid reusing wood. Thanks again.

Nice Sanger, and what a rocket!. I have a friend with one who barefoots almost exclusively. He had to re-do the floor.

Hi,

Consider using foamed PVC boards. They come in a range of thicknesses are lightweight, sturdy and won’t rot.

One brand is called Sintra, https://graphicdisplayusa.com/produc...ra/sintra-pvc/

You’ll find this or similar at plastic distributors and/or DIY stores.

Thanks for this also. I'm so used to Mastercraft construction, it is really strange (disconcerting) to see all of the wood. As I replace things I'd like to avoid more wood. That being said, the boat seems very well made. My son barefoots competitively. This was the cheapest way to get a good barefoot wake. These boats look very cool on the water. I hope it performs well. It wasn't easy having it shipped to Ontario from B.C.! As long as the motor has no surprises, all should be well. I enjoy the work and it should be a real head turner when it's done.
