It would originally have been Gaboon marine ply, probably 3/8" / 9mm, but possible 1/2" / 12mm.
It would have been primed/sealed with G4, then laminated (within the appropriate time period for the G4) with a single 450g chopped strand mat on both sides before fitment. edges where bonding paste, or matt was gonna go would be sanded for keying.
it would be set into Crestomer 1186pa bonding paste (originally this would have been 'Freefix' bonding paste) within the longitudinals and laminated in (across floor and up longit) with 2 or 3 layers of 450.
