Does anyone have a good source for buying 1088 plywood in that region, maybe Miss included?

Is that avaliable in most thicknesses? If so do you have the source? Most of that was also pretty good, especially with a solid face and a few footballs on the back side.

Depending on your project, you might like this stuff that Warthog showed me. The material was ultra light weight and you can get it in Pelham, Alabama (just south of Birmingham).

Hey Bobby, what was that stuff

There is a fellow in Cullman that needs some decent plywood and has looked everywhere for quality materials. He states that Lowes in Birmingham orders in some marine grade exotics and I have never heard of that. He said that the manager would not tell him as he would go and pick it up without having to jump through all the channels awaiting also for it to be processed and delivered to their store.

Here it is Merridith Lumber. They always have 3/8in,1/2in and 3/4in in stock. That's it...No 1/4in.

I've had people come from Miss. over here to buy it from them. Last I remember it was $76 a sheet for 3/4in.

Seaplane1978 os talking about Coosa Board.

Oyster always works in wood now Alan.

Dang Mike....I haven't had time to check the updates.

Looking real good. :)


But wait! That's not your boat. It's not even in your shop.

Nope, thats not mine but one that I have assisted in the upgrades from plywood cold moulded to modern materials also pushed by you. HEHE! Thats been a ten year project of strip plank white cedar, laminated skins of spanish cedar and glassed, all approved by a N.A. too. So its all possible when others are doing all that nasty resin work too.
You will understand this one warthog. Heat gun and corecell, glassed over.
