    Default Need Info On Interior Build

    I am building a budget interior (low budget), and can't really afford marine plywood. I need to know what I can use to treat standard plywood to build some seat boosters and some siding. I dont have any experience with resin / fiberglass either. Can I just sand it down and put some Thompsons water sealer on it? Then just staple down my vinyl with stainless staples. Any help would be appreciated.

    personally thompsons sucked on my deck so i would not trust it on my boat.. marine ply isnt that much more than regualr but i know i found some kind of water damage sealer in home depot that i used on my joists when i had some water damage in bathroom..it was notcheap but it made the wood hard as a rock and impervious to water... Im trying to find the exact product but i cant seem to find it online.

    It all depends on how long ya want your interior to last. Do you store ya rig inside or out in the elements? Glassing atleast the joints and corners will help strengthen seats,screws and nails alone will not last near as long as glassing.Cloth and resin are not that hard to find nor work with.Wood will deteriorate quickly if exposed to rain...

    You have to seal it with resin, on all sides! If you want it to last.

    You MUST use either "exterior", "marine" or "pressure treated".

    Standard plywood has a WATER-SOLUBLE GLUE, and, get it wet for a while (like the seat under your wet backside, or get it rained one ONCE, and the surface ply sheet WILL pop loose and buckle.

    Seen it myself when someone made this mistake building an outdoor shed, even AFTER it had been painted.

    You should put a coat of resin on all surfaces and at least a layer of mat on all inside and outside corners. I got a little carried away, but i'll never half to do this one again. For about $60.00 you can buy a gallon of resin, some mat and a couple of cheap brushes. I mix it up in small batches at a time and put the brush in acetone between batches. I even resin coated the wood for the fender pads.

    I talked to a guy that worked at a plywood plant up here in WA. He said there was really no difference in the plywood (other than the wood used) cuz they all used the exterior glue. ???
