I need to replace some wood. I cant decide on if I should use marine grade plywood (not in my area so shipping would be a nightmare) or if I should just use regular plywood. From what I have read regular plywood would work just fine as long as I resin and glass it.

Any ideas?

Every area has concrete forms plywood. It goes by diffrent names in diffrent places but it is used to build shapes that concrete is poored into to harden. That stuff is as good or better than marine plywood for strength. I do not know that it comes in thin sheets , and that may be a problem.

Well I am looking at ~ 1/2 thick so it might be available in this thickness. What about using ceder as a finishing wood? I was considering making my shelves out of ceder. So I could use the plywood for structure reinforcements and ceder as the eye candy.

The problem with red cedar is the low density. Red cedar is relatively soft. Density and wear resistance can be roughly equated. Teak, afromosia and oak are all roughly the same density, red cedar is only around 50% as dense.

I read afromosia is a lot less expencive than teak and more available in some areas.

Cedar smells good up until you seal it. It also discourages some insects.

I just got back from Home depot and all they had was Birch plywood. I suppose this would work for some of the wood projects inside the CM

What do you all think of Birch?

Really no substitute for marine grade plywood.



Looked into the concrete grade stuff a bit more, and it has release agents that will make it more difficult to get things you want, adhered to it.

Yea the only plywood I can get in this area is Birch and hardwood oak plywood. They do have some other flake board but that's not even an option for me.

I bet the birch will work on the seats inside the cabin. I need to replace the tops of the seat wells in my cabin (also the area that holds the keel wench) and I don't have may options.

I cant even find marine plywood online ^^

Your Just The Right Size signature line is right on. I had a Mac 25 and most of it was a pretty good fit. I loved the way it sailed. Two little things bothered me, at 6'7" I could not keep my pants up, as I bent over to move around, every time, down would go the pants. Oddly enough, I could live with that. What ticked me off most was the after thought design of the kicker motor set up. Had I gotten a CM26 instead of a Mac 26, my last year may well have played out a lot simpler.

With the poptop down, I too have problems with my pants leaving my waistline and also am not really bothered by it. However, my wife says crack kills.

Thanks for these links. So far I used Birch in places that it wont get wet. I still need to find a place near that sells plywood for my intended use.

I see you're in WA. Anywhere Olympia? Hardel Plywood in Olympia makes and carries an Okume overlayed marine grade plywood. I used to work for them making the stuff.

Dams i did not think of that. Ill start looking in Olympia. Thanks.

I am beginning to think Okume is the best selection of wood. I might get my CM back to factory but I want to sail more. As you know time fixing the boat is time lost sailing the boat.

Okume is beautifull stuff. Has a lot of the color of teak and sometimes the veneer is full of burl like highlights. I have used it for cabinetry in the house before.
