What type of aluminum sheeting for River table

I have acquired a pair of folding legs for a river table. I was originally going to do a wood top but now want to do a metal one. Any suggestions on the type of metal and thickness I should use?

The table will double as a hatch lid.

I have 0.090 tops that work great and save a couple of lbs. If you find a scrap piece you can cut it with a regular finish blade in your skill saw and use a router to put in strap slots for tie downs. Otherwise you'll pay $20+ for a shear cut charge and my have to buy a whole sheet of material. You may also want to look at HDPE plastic as an option.
Good Luck

Found a place that has .9 and will cut for free and won't charge for full sheet.

Thanks!
