Marine Plywood vs. Starboard?

I built forward and aft casting platforms for my Montauk from 1" X 1" slats...Not happy with the ones I built as flyline ALWAYS finds its way between them. Now thinking solid platforms are the way to go instead. Not especially attracted to Marine Plywood but willing to go that route if (1) it weighs less and (2) is cheaper.
Which way to go? If Starboard do you have a good source?
Thanks in advance.

My choice would be marine grade plywood for these reasons:
2) weights less
3) more slip resistant
4) looks better
5) it depends on type of plywood, but may cost less.

Thanks for the rapid reply. Your opinion means a great deal to me. I take it as guidance. To that end, I'll pursue the marine plywood solution. In fact, I've already been contacted by another member of this forum who deals in marine plywood in Tacoma and will be contacting him tomorrow.
Thanks again for the input.

I bet Al Ulbrickson will fix you up with some good stuff from Plywood Tacoma.

I'll bet Al's email to me was sent nearly as fast as your reply to my initial post, 8min. :) Will contact him today. Thanks again. Gads, this Forum is almost like working in "real-time."
