Mon1, I just installed an entire interior on a 15' Sport made from King Starboard, it turned out great. It looks terrific and there is no on going upkeep with the product just soap and water. It actully turned out better than I could have imagined. I didn't have any original wood to go from so mine is slightly customized. I too was faced with the hefty price to replace the interior with wood. For my use in the FL sun, I didn't want the upkeep. Just a thought.

I understand that starboard comes in black, not just white-- are any other colors of starboard available??? David

Do you have your original wood? Materials could be available locally. Maybe take some photos to a local millwork shop or find someone that makes furniture etc. Cutting and finishing is pretty straightforward but requires time and care. Another thought, if you have all of your wood is refinishing. Alot of wood can be saved that looks like junk but with a little work turns out very nice. Plus you'd have the original wood that came with the boat.

David....Black, white and beige seem to be the norm. Just remember it needs to be supported if used for seets. It is also ungodly expensive.

Has seats for an 11 Tender, new, for $40 a pop. A couple of those could go a long way toward minimizing cost to keep it original.

Starboard runs about $340.00 for a full sheet which is about 4'x8'. This is how much I used to do a complete interior for my 15'. As for the forward seat support, we made a compartment to house an 11 gallon tempo fuel tank. This acts as the support in the center. 3/4" Starboard is very dense and quite stiff. As I stated earlier it turned out better than I expected and looks great, Very sturdy. Still cheaper than wood. As far as tools go, we used a jigsaw, router, and cordless drill. Very easy to work with, a good t-square is a must.

Down here in Miami, and you all are welcome to come down, no passports, visas or shots needed, we have a little old place called Medley Hardwood. A woodworker buddy and I bought about $180 of mahogany and spent about three hours planning, milling, cutting, ripping and sawing and I had a beautiful brand new sset of wood.
