Our company has to manufacture countertops out of marine grade plywood from time to time, I'll have to check to see who our vendor is next week.

A few years ago we bult a drift boat from a set of plans that we purchased.  It too called for marine grade plywood.  We contacted a yacht builder in Sturgeon Bay, Wi, the name I believe was Palmer Johnson, and procured the plywood through them.  Best of luck, Russ Bouck

Just an opinion, but this stuff is the Cat's fanny:

There's a manufacturer of a similar product up in ND, but I can't find them on-line.

I agree with the polymer board for decking, though I was under the impression that it is -
1. Extremely expensive
2. Quite heavy
Other than that, I know it would last forever

It is expensive, but if it's a boat you're planning on keeping, cheaper in the long run.

Heavy is dependent on how much you need to use, I guess.

McCormick Lumber in Madison is where I have gotten it in the past.  They have small boat building supplies.

I've done a little boat building with plywood.  I have  the Glen L book about plywood for boat building.
Basically what  I have  read about it says that exterior grade
plywood uses the same glue as marine grade. Marine
grade is a spec that means there are no voids in the
plys.  If you are using plywood for the hull marine
grade is the way to go.  For a deck I would use exterior grade.

If you are near the Madison area.  Brunsell lumber carries it.  It is kinda pricy from them, I bought some about 8 years ago to restore my old boat.

The selection of plywood is very important for fish boat. Marine plywood should be durable as provided by good brands. They use high quality exterior and the glue that is usedfor water
resistant structure.

Good people there.



If you're hell bent on marine plywood, look for a stamp-seal that reads,
"BS1088" somewhere on the plywood sheet.

Also, check out what Menard's has to offer,
http://www.menards.com/main/building-materials/panel-products/plywood/3-4-x-4-x-...
Again, not ed zachary cheap, but this may be more
economical for your boat decking application.
