I am looking at replacing a few pieces of aluminum
trim on my boat with stainless steel
. These are decorative pieces with no structural value. They cover the deck/hull joint on the stern of the boat where there is no toerail. Currently they are 1/8" .125 Aluminum
. I would like to replace them with stainless steel
but am not sure what thickness to use. At the local sheet metal supply store I can find 22 gauge(.03) #4 finish in 4x10 sheets
for $160.07 a sheet. I don't think that that will be thick enough. What gauge would anyone knowledgeable recommend?
