Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Jim,

Lowe's, Menard's, and Home Depot will all special order it for you, however it is expensive. You really only need marine grade for boat hulls where it's important not to have voids in the plywood interior. Everything else you could use a good grade of exterior plywood which is made with "waterproof" glues but does have some voids on the interior. As long as everything is water-tight, which you would want regardless of which grade plywood you use, you should be good to go for both your projects.

Everyone has two cents, these were mine :-)
