    This is exactly why I posted this, glad I did. Thanks for all of the info. I'll have to research where I can pick up starboard unless you're saying I can get it at hd or lowes. Man, way too much to think about!!

    What size and thickness should I be looking at?

    You have to find the extra thick joints where the top and bottom of the boat get fused( technical term) DO NOT SCREW DIRECTLY INTO THE SIDE WALL(AKA HULL)

    FWIW I used 1/2 plywood treated 3 to 4 times with clear thompsons watersealer and carpeted with regular sub carpet.
    shim amp board up 1/2" with scrap piece and screw into weld.

    Wow starboard isn't cheap. Found a somewhat local west marine has 12"x27"x1/2" for $37.99 and 24"x27"x1/2" for $96.99.

    Maybe I'll look at a large cutting board? I assume the plastic kind?

    Some manufacturers glass in a couple pieces of composite material just for the purpose of securing the amp rack to. In a lot of cases, they will be under the carpet and not readily seen. For boats with out this, or when the OEM placement doesnt fit our custom design, we use a polyurethane adhesive to bond a block or stand-off, to the inside of the hull where we need it, in order to secure the amp rack to.

    I found this at walmart $13. Picked up two to bond together. Should work right? What can I use to bond them together (without having to screw)

    They have a juice well (rim) around the edge so I figured i would just flip one over and bond together. Thoughts?
