    I'm looking for composite sheeting to use as flooring for a 20' john boat.
    I've seen composite floors before - not the glass backing stuff - but I can't find a source.
    I'm also looking for 3" thick sheets of floatation foam. I don't want to foam the bottom because it's my duck boat and occassional repairs are needed.
    I want the insulation of a removable foam that doesn't hold water or rot.
    If anyone knows where I can get this stuff, or if you have any good suggestions, I'd sure appreciate and email.

    One source that you may want to check out is Defender Industries. They have a lot of things that other suppliers don't carry, and I have seen closed cell foam on their web site that should work for your application.
