- Sep 2, 2009My $0.02--I have had grave trouble getting top quality plywood for
boating projects. For a largish displacement powerboat I am building,
getting in half-inch MDO served perfectly well for the hull and bottom.
But, for the cabinsides, I wanted some quality plywood that is lighter
I can order up plywood sheets of any type or quality, but the delivery
fees here in Lawrence, KS, make them laughably expensive. A couple of
sheets of quarter-inch plywood end up costing in the neighborhood of
$200 a sheet.
It turns out that I can build the cabin sides out of first quality
Honduran mahogany for less than meranti (Phillipine "mahogany") plywood.
There is simply no way that I can find to make shipping costs affordable.
