Marine ply

 Any recommendation for someone supplying cheap marine ply? Preferably in northern suburbs. Just need couple of 2440 X 1220 X 9mm sheets. Thanks all.

As a sucker who paid a great price for cheap marine ply for my deck, the cost to remove all of it and do it again has ensured I will never buy cheap marine ply again.

Whatever you get, make sure it is stamped as certified.

Worth getting the good stuff

 Fifteen ears back I built a small boat using British standard gaboon ply and it has stood the test of time. No delamination.These days certified marine ply here might come as Australian Standard AS2272 grade or British Standard BS1086. Not sure what the difference is, but if possible I'd go for AS2272 for peace of mind that the ply has been verified to meet the standard.
