205 Owners Help Please

So I need to make a new sunpad for my 98 205, can anyone feel the thickness of the wood for the sunpad and let me know what there's is? I'm thinking 1/2-3/4"

Thanks

Its not wood. It is 1/2" HDPE.

For that piece, given its location, I would definitely make the base out of HDPE as opposed to wood.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Polyethylene http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-density_polyethylene

It isn't cheap.

I cut out the template and on my way to find HDPE and my next door neighbor is an upholstery guy so this might be a one day thing



Anyone in need of a pad? depending on how this turns out I might be able to hook you up with one

Where is the HDPE? All I see is foam and wood...

Did your boat not have a pad before?

That's the template I cut out this morning and I just cut the hdpe, and yes I had a pad up until last weekend heading to the river on the I-10 around Vicksburg.
