    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

    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.
