Been lurking for years and finally bought plans for Tubby Tug. Anyone have suggestions for finding marine plywood in the Birmingham, Al. area or nearby?
Thanks

I'm down in Pelham. I have had no luck getting marine in B'ham. I ordered from Homestead in Ohio and had it shipped. I have also bought from Noah's. This one of our biggest problems.

I used exterior Luan from the box store on the mini-tug that I built. I really soaked it with CPES glassed it and painted. Seem to be fine. But, not much use of it. How long do you think you'll use it?

Thanks Bill
The Tug is for my kids (10 & 8 & growing like weeds) so I can't imagine it being a family heirloom. Cheaper stuff from box stores does seem more appropriate.
I'll check out Homestead and Noah's for future projects.
