fiberglass side panels for Amphicars

I am rebuilding my Amphicar & have so much rust that we need to put on new
side panels. I would like some club feedback about the fiberglass panels.

Fiberglass panels seem like a great choice as they are so lightweight &
cost efficient. I am concerned about the fact that if fiberglass is hit
(accidents will happen) a hole will appear causing an additional problem of
sinking.

Metal is so much more expensive but seems better if there is an accident in
water. What info can anyone give me, especially any info from people with
fiberglass panels?

If you want to e-mail me directly with info my address is ribcab@davisp.com.

Thanks for your imput. I'm sure I will need more when we resolve this
problem.
