Re: Who sells marine plywood?

For inside the boat not exposed to water, a both-sides good hardwood plywood saturated with a penetrating epoxy would be more than good enough. 3/4" plywood is better than 1/2".

This may also be good for the transom work but double 3/4" and add a few layers of saturated fiberglass fabric.

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Can anyone give an example of when marine grade NEEDS to be used instead of pressure treated? When is it worth it?

I would have to measure but I think I have a piece that would fit your 4'x2' section but I don't have a piece large enough for the 6' section, so you would have to buy a 4'x8' sheet anyway.

I know Exotic typically carries it in stock but not sure if that is convenient for you?

I would probably want to use Marine Plywood for the jobs you want to do, but I suppose you could get by with the other suggestions, maybe pose your question to the Wooden Boat Forum? LOL

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 :-)

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Thanks everyone!

Shawn, I think you're going to be far enough away that it won't really be cost effective for me to buy the small piece from you. If you had both, I'd be game. It would be nice to meet you!

Thanks again for the quick and helpful replies!

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

One more source of marine and exotic plywoods, and they will ship, is Boulter Plywood in Sommerville MA. BoulterPlywood.com....

Marine grade plywood uses waterproof and boilproof adhesive, and has NO VOIDS (at all).

Another way to find wood suppliers (plywood or hardwood) is using woodfinder.

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Regarding pressure treated: NO.
It doesn't like varnish and it doesn't like epoxy.

A good exterior grade ply, sealed with epoxy is more than adequate for backing plates and core reconstruction. for NON-STRUCTURAL below-decks use, a sheet of cabinet grade ply sealed with epoxy is fine.

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Jim, I see that your in PA. Check with the local lumber yards, not Lowes or Homedepot. My local yard in Hatboro actually had some in stock, I needed 3/4" and 1/4" they had them. Older stock that they were not going to replenish.

Also Delaware Supply Co.in Boothwyn, has a ton of hardwoods and plywood, just off of 95 near the Delaware border. Have a couple of wooden boatbuilders I know who buy their lumber there.

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

BlueMan, I'm not that far from you (near Lansdale). Hatboro is an easy drive for me. Where did you find them? I can always call and see if they still have any. Otherwise, I can try Delaware Supply, but that's a bit of a hike.

Thanks for the tips!
