5052 aluminum sheet for floor and front deck

where can i get this part??

Hate to say it but just threw one away a week ago. Came off a fiberglass john I just cut up and hauled off to get it outta my garage. Keep an eye out for some old fiberglass boats that are rotted out maybe they'd let ya have the whole boat for little or nothing.
