Jamestown sells a 6-pack of 1/4" 12x12 boards for ~$110. There might be a cheaper option available now, but that seemed to be the best I could find when I looked a few years ago. And the 6-pack has lasted me through many projects.You can also build "L" shaped beams or a flat with "Ls" on each side, with G10 if you think there's lateral force bracing required....or gussets. Using G10 can be made into what is required. I'm not saying you need to, but lots can be done depending on what you determine is needed. As Arron states, if there is rot, that needs to be dealt with. Personally, I like overkill, and weight can be considered depending on what you want the boat for and where you're sailing it. G10 is certainly lighter than SS.
