A word of advice, pay careful attention to the edges of the plywood. If the finish gets worn enough to allow moisture in, your plywood will delaminate. You may want to put a fresh coat on the edges each year. For more protection, you could remove the varnish on the edge and do a coat of epoxy, then cover with varnish. It will then be much more impervious.
I'll definitely keep that in mind. Of course, I could have bought marine grade plywood with a teak veneer, but then that would not have qualified as "Low Bucks"!
