I've used them twice in five years. Been good service, once they shipped my order to LBI in connecticut but that got sorted out. Shipping ranges between 120-300$ alone though so be mindful of that

Thanks for feedback. I’m thinking about placing an order for my whole boat for a bunch of panels and rolls of glass so it’s “free” shipping over $3500 .

Just ordered a few finished panels from them. You can not lay panels up yourself for less. The edge of my panels where smashed in a few inches in one spot. Ok for my use, so I kept them and with request they waved the shipping fee. BTW shipping is less if delivered to buss address.

Bill, I'd be interested in piggy-backing in that order. I've contemplated ordering some 1.5" though them, but the shipping made it real expensive. I almost posted a thread on here to see if anyone wanted to get together on an order. Thoughts?

They look good, I will be using them for recessed door panels and table top.

Strange minds think a like, or something like that... I had some back and forth with them just last week on the gelcoat finished panels. All was the same as mentioned by others. I was looking at 1/2" panels, finished on one side @ $172/panel. They said they were out and would have more in a few weeks. If you want the gelcoat finish your choices are white, or buy 60 panels. (white sounds good). The shipping was a bit painful, talking almost $200. The thought of composite panels I didn't have to finish off sounded mighty good.

I have called them a few times as well, and it seems they never had anything in inventory that i was looking for. Pricing def seems great.

I just reached out to this company in FLA called "PolyUMac" - I have heard from a friend that they have very very good pricing... I reached out to them and will post up what I find. They seem to offer a coosa knock off called "gatorboard", and PE foam in densities from 5-26lb/cuft. Has anyone used them before?

I am interested to hear about anyone's experience with PE foam. Price is right, thinking about experimenting with some for a couple of upcoming projects.

What is PE foam? I think coosa is poly urethane and nida core is poly propylene.
