An ideal material for building projects to replace worn-out teak or plastic laminates or plastic parts on your boat. Starboard is high-density polyethylene which is stabilized to resist saltwater, chemicals, and sunlight. It will not rot, splinter, swell or delaminate! It retains its original color indefinitely, and doesn’t require refinishing. The scuff-resistant surface cleans easily and quickly with a scrub brush and light abrasive cleaner. It has a beautiful matte surface texture, and ranges in thickness: 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4".
Starboard is great for projects like cutting boards and bait boards, shower floors, companionway hatch boards, sink covers, cabinets and electronics boxes, bait wells, table tops and literally hundreds of other applications.
Starboard needs no painting, finishing, or maintenance. It is widely used by professional boat builders. If your boat was built in the last 15 years, it probably has starboard parts somewhere on board.
To replace worn or damaged wood just remove the old part and bring it to Pratt Plastics where we will use the old part as a template.
Clean Starboard with a mild solution of liquid soap or boat wash and water, and a synthetic/nylon “scrub” brush. Remove stains with Citrus Cleaner, Mineral Spirits, or Alcohol. Avoid contact with chemicals such as Teak Oil, which can cause permanent stains. Lead pencil, Ink pen, or permanent markers will stain Starboard. Furniture polish or products such as Armor-All can add an attractive luster to the finish.
