What Material?

I have a friend who has just bought a sailboat, and says it is in need of some interior repairs. He said he found some 1/2" interior/exterior birch plywood at HD and asked if that would work, is there a more suitable material that should be used?
Not knowing nuttin about them sailboats, I told him I would ask here in the NG. If the information ain't available here, then a person just don't need to know.
Thanks,
John

As a general rule, whatever type of wood you find at the HD, it's probably not suitable for a boat.
The way it is asked, your question can't be answered.
What type of boat, wood, fiberglass, etc?
What type of repair, structural, cosmetic, etc?

of
birch
From my understanding it is just interior cosmetic repairs, maybe the deck needs patching or maybe the floor (if sail boats have a floor), like I said, I don't know the first thing about sail boats, just thought someone here might.. Don't know what the hull is made of.

Nope - a spoonful of gravy and taters - but that's about it. Should've spoken up sooner. :-)
