Any concerns about a plastic material warping with temperature fluxuations? Or was there some extra space factored in for it to grow?

I know the starboard I used changes shape quite a bit with the seasons.
I researched the material quite a bit and talked with one of the engineers at King Plastics before pulling the trigger. I did leave some room for it to move as per the manufacturer's recommendations. They gave me some specs and common practices to follow. I don't believe it will be a problem.
Just curious how the starboard worked out long term?
I have a new project and would like to use a similar system of 80/20 and starboard panels.

Thanks

It got to $80,277.77 on the first go around, but didn't meet reserve. I think I saw it listed somewhere for $89k so I think the reserve will be somewhere in that neighborhood although he did lower it going into the last day I think to try to encourage a few more bids. Sweet van, worth every penny.

Ok so I wasn't crazy. I thought I had seen $85k(buy-it-now IIRC). Overall, an immense value!
