Family and performance Boating Mag did an article a few months ago about making an engine cover with that stuff. It looked pretty cool.

You can do anything with it you do with wood except glue it. There is a very special epoxy that will stick to it but for all intents and purposes it cannot be glued. You can cut, drill, and sand it just like wood. And it can't be painted.

Default doors

does anyone know of someplace that will custom cut some doors? I have some oddball sizes that I want done. Oh yeah, I don't want to pay out the wazoo for the custom cuts

Check a good lumber yard. There is a new all plastic "trim" board out. I played with the samples at my local 84 lumber and it looks like neat stuff. Don't think it is as heavy as Starboard, screws and nails/staples. I didn't ask about glue but would guess a good urethane would work. Price was $180 for a 4x8x1/2 sheet, a little much for the cabinets I was building (needed 25 sheets) but not bad for a few boat pieces.

There is also a good material called Ren Shape that we use for molds. It's a foam but with properties like wood. It comes in a range of harness and density. Might be a little tougher to find a local suplier, but take a look at for some info.
