PVC Plastic sheets

About this Splore

I am building a wakeboard rail and need some plastic cover for the top that can be slid on. I bought some thin plastic sheeting at Lowe's but it ripped the first time we slid across it. I would really like some 1/4 inch PVC sheeting, but that stuff can be pretty expensive. Does anyone have any scrap PVC sheets or any ideas for another way to make a slick, solid and durable surface for the top of my slider?

farm/ ranch supply?

Try looking into farm/ ranch supply houses. I think sometimes they use large, thick plastic sheeting as walls for horse stalls and such.
Still going to be 120-150 per sheet anything you find. Good luck!

Loved the rail

I know its too late now and the rail is already AWESOME. But we had that same problem with my uncle when we build a table with PVC sheet on top. The screws ripped through because i was too thin. Where did you end up getting yours? The other option weve been looking at is some synthetic wood like trex or somthing, but that gets expensive too and its as slick...
