Peter,

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but reading your note above, it sounds as though you plan to put a veneer layer over a piece of standard plywood? That is really going about things the hard way.

My suggestion would be to purchase a sheet of marine plywood of appropriate thickness for the job. This marine ply would already have the veneer on the outer layers. No need to purchase a separate veneer layer. If your boat has a teak interior, you can even get teak-veneers.
