To which Coosa to choose...?

Lately I've seen several threads that mention the use of Coosa Board products for floor restorations. Originally I was planning to use a product by Nyloboard, now a defunct company so they are out. But then I read one of the aforementioned threads and realized that there was a new option to go with. All of this brings me to a few questions to those that have already used this for your subfloor.

1) Which type did you choose? I.e. Bluewater 26/20 or any of the Nautical lines.
2) Why did you choose that version?
3) Is 26 preferable over 20 because it is stiffer or does it not make too significant of a difference in rigidity while towing?

As far as the weight of it is concerned I know the 20 is lighter. Would this be a considerably issue based on the size of Ingoji? No not really. But financially... 20 is cheaper by the price of a full sheet of 26 for the amount I need to purchase.

I don't think weight is a significant issue - for any given thickness, Coosa board is lighter than plywood. I think a call or email directed to the manufacturer will help you determine which products are suitable without overspending. Board that is 5/8" thick is a special order of 5 or more sheets, so it might be worthwhile to look up a local dealer or owners who might be willing to get together on a purchase.

What about insulation in coosa. Would love to loose all the bulky rodent infested fiberglass insulation out of my 1966 safari renovation.

Lots of good Coosa board info available, in many recent threads, via the new search function above in the blue box, which works great to search only this AF site:

You want to go with the Bluewater because its more structural. Bluewater uses both the stranded and the woven fiberglass. Nautical while is strong, I dont think its structural.

We have actually performed a side-by-side comparison to plywood on three categories-impact, rigidity, and water absorption. Ill have the video out in a couple weeks on youtube at
