Talking Floor in the boat needs replacement

Any suggestions on where to get the wood for a boat floor. It is wood in a Hewes Craft, I have a few soft spots and need to do the entire floor.

I just called them and the price was pretty good.

Marine plywood 3/4=$100
5/8=$90


3/4 AB which they said most boat dealers use is
$50
5/8 smooth on one side
36.99

Not too bad of a price

I'm in the middle of doing mine. 5/8" MDO (Medium Density Overlay) smooth on one side, or both. Look it up on the net for details. A boat dealer recommended that as that is what they use as well.

I got the wood for my floor at Mr. Plywood. I used MDO. It's the same material North River uses for their floors.

Consider diamond plate. I hope to get another year, maybe two outta mine. When I do replace it I'm leaning hard on going with diamond plate. You'll never have to change it again.

Probably 1/8" or 3/16". It will be more spendy than plywood. Don't know how much more though. Like I said I was leaning toward this. I have been on several boats with diamond plate floor and it works great with no maintanance issues.

I found this on CL and it would be a lot more expensive which I can not see at this point for the thicker stuff

NEW ALUMINUM DIAMOND PLATE
.063"" 4X8=$95
.063" 4X10=$117.50
.063" 4x12=$140

.125" 4x8=$180
.125" 4x10=$225
.125" 4x12 $270

THICKER DIAMOND PLATE
.25" 4X8=$346
.25" 4x10=$433
.25" 4X12=$520
