…Hey Paul…thanks for your input a sailboat neighbor helped me with the resin, and fiberglass…i used 3/4 inch cedar…i did a pretty crappy job, but i believe there are no ways for water to get under…not pretty, but, hey how does the song go; “if you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, take a pretty woman for your wife, but from my personal point of view, get an ugly girl to marry you”…structurally after the fiberglass it was a little high and i only put 2 layers on…i’m able to lock it up and walk on it…cost about 75 dollars for the whole job…
