    I know that I could use coosa blue water 26 for my deck to replace the 1/2" plywood core that was in there prior.

    But, if there another core that is equivalent that I should consider?

    I don't think any type of honey comb would work since I would have to increase the thickness of the core and I don't want to waste alot of resin

    You need to provide span details.

    Aquaplas comes in 1/2".


    Perhaps a 12# corecell, but $$$$

    Other cores may suit, but only if spans are known.

    Coosaboard is a stand alone structural element though, is it not ? The reinforcement is built in to it. Are there analogues of that, I guess is the question. Likely would be.
