I live in a small town (doesn't even have the population on the sign, it's that small) in Eastern Ontario Canada.

I got a fastener kit from Glen-L (all the silicon bronze screws/nails etc I needed for my specific model), on sale (one of their various sales) and got it shipped right to my door (ok, to the rural route post office down the road where we pick up our mail), across an international border.

I also required a few silicon bronze carriage bolts for the stem/keel connection and the transom knee. I likewise sourced them from Clark Craft in Buffalo NY.

In today's environment, there is not much that can't be "had" if you order "on-line".

Yes, Plywood is "real" wood :)

A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)
