pretty much the size of the state of Florida as a whole. Not sure the name
of this one, but it is not the name that decides the damage. It is its'

Some folks feel plywood should do the trick, and it may... for a short while. After the plywood starts getting wet, it becomes saturated and soaked all the way through. The glues that hold the plys together start to degrade and become soft. If an impact occurs, it may not be enough to protect you.
There are a few considerations for plywood users. Once the wood has been wet, its' glues and holding structure may have been compromised. Most of the time it is thrown out after its first use. It will likely warp and leave behind unsightly holes. You may or may not plug the holes, but water intrusion into improperly plugged holes could also cause more damage including mold within the concrete block system. Once the plywood is down and the holes are gone, what is the chance of storing the plywood, placing the pieces back where they were, oriented correctly and in the same holes?
