Where would be the best place to buy Mahogony?

I was thinking the platform should be 1 1/2"s thick (I was considering using 2 sheets of 3/4" plywood encapsillated in fiberglass or resin. I

f it was Mahogony what thickness would you recommend?

It's for my 26' which has a 10' beam. I was thinking about 10' wide x about 3' deep... Do you think 3' would be too deep?

That commercial bathroom stuff is a pretty good idea! Where do you think I could get some of that???

I made the poling platform for my jonboat out of that plastic deckboard from Home Depot which I planed down to be 9/16" thick...

What ever you use for the deck please use only stainless steel for supports below the water line. Even anodized aluminum pipe doesn't last when the boat is left in the water.I can show you how to use SS fittings and you can get the pipe drops cheap from most large marine canvas shops.:mmmbeer

Not that breeze needs my backing. Use SS and teak. I really don't know how maghony stands up, but you are well assured teak will handle the salt water just fine. Teak and SS would be my way to go, unless of course you plan to fiberglass the thing.
