    Default Rear compartment separator wall thickness?

    Can anyone get a quick measurement and let me know what the thickness is of the rear compartment wall / separator? (see below) Doesn't really matter what year/model boat you have.

    I'm about to rebuild/replace my existing ones that aren't cutting it for the new split cushion sundeck support.

    Debating on going with 1/2" vs 3/4". The 1100 bags put a fair amount of stress on it, but then again I'm wondering if going thicker is overkill as these sheets are spendy stuff.

    Thanks

    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Walls are 1/2" thick.

    Thanks Joe - do they seem beefy enough to you? My old ones are covered with carpet on both sides so it is hard to get a good idea of exactly how thick they are. But I can see they've flexed a little.

    If you are sticking with the 1100's, then I would strengthen them with aluminum like others have done on the forum. The 750's in my OBV caused the walls to flex, so I a sure the 1100's will flex more.
