Re: Choice of USA Grown Wood for Rebuilding

Whatever the price difference, I'd go with quality marine ply and not regular lumberyard outdoor ply. It's not like you're going to buy hundreds of sheets of the stuff, so whatever savings there are with outdoor ply are probably not worth it. There is a big difference between marine and outdoor ply (starting with the glue). When you think of the work involved in a job like replacing and tabbing bulkheads you want to use the best materials so you don't have to do it again for a long time. I would use only the best marine ply and also seal it with epoxy.
