Anybody know where I can find large (4x4 or 4x8) pieces of teak plywood? Does such a thing exist? If not, how about "marine grade" plywood? Thanks!

Your best bet is to check the internet for suppliers in your area. If not let me know. I probably have some sources. Bruce

Yes, there is marine grade teak plywood available, probably in thicknesses ranging from 1/4" to 3/4". Same applies to philippine mahogany. Boston Whaler used the 1/4" teak plywwod for years for the Outrage stern sump covers. Look to a specialty or hardwoods lumber retailer as a source.

I stumbled across a place that supplies wood for whalers. The address of the site is whalerwood.com they list some prices also.

Correction - Above I mentioned that the teak plywood sump covers used on Montauks & Outrages was 1/4" thick. Not correct - it was 7/16" marine teak plywood. (I just measured mine!)
