Re: Who sells marine plywood?

I do wood turning and other woodwork as a hobby. That would be a bad place for me to go.

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Last I checked, Harbor Sales no longer maintains a Baltimore location. They do have marine ply at the Eastern Shore location, but it is wise to call first. Another idea is to consider various plastics like Coosa board. It will never rot but it is more expensive. Factoring in driving distance and time, Coosa board or similar may be competitive for you.

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Jim,

Another option to consider is MDO (Medium Density Overlay) plywood. It's typically used for concrete molds and for highway signs. Great stuff. The resin impregnated paper facing takes paint (and epoxy) like a champ. I've never found any voids in any I've used.

IMO, the MDO is not as bullet proof as real quality marine ply but it's more bullet proof than regular exterior ply.
