Okay you guys help me out here. I built a 8 ft. by 32 in. flat bottom freight sled and need some suggestions for suitable bottom material to attach to the plywood. Obviously P-tex is preferable but I took one look at the price and my cheapskate-affective-disorder just flared up on me something awful. Is there some other acceptable substitute without spending an arm and a leg.
Perhaps some of those large plastic totes used in the oil field industry? Can you find those used surplus?
An old plastic canoe?
Where do the boaters get the stuff for bottoms?
I have seen galvanized metal used, but it seems like that would freeze down pretty bad and not slide as well.
If I fiberglassed it, would that crack out?
