It's been so long since I bought any marine plywood, that I'm sure the
supplier landscape has changed dramatically. Back in the day, we had it
shipped in as cheaply as possible, and that could take weeks or months. ;-)
Waiting for empty space on the truck isn't an option now.
I'm sure many suppliers will ship, but is there anyone selling it within a
days drive of Raleigh , NC?
Any favorite or reccomended suppliers no matter where they are?
Thanks in advance,
In Raleigh ???? nawwww(I used to live there)
Call one of the many boat guys in Morehead city and ask them
Here are two... that are far away from you...
which both carry the "good stuff" it appears...
If you are talking about "marine grade" SYP plywood,
those are NOT your guys...

I think they're 10 hours from you, but I bet it's worth the drive.
I've been to the shop several times, great service. I haven't bought
any marine ply from them yet, but I wouldn't hesitate when the time
comes. The stuff on hand looked really good. Call/email and ask
what's in stock. There should be plenty as there are always guys
redoing their Lymans this time of year.

I went there for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Good people.
I'll be going there on Saturday to buy the lumber for my dining table.
The neatest thing about the shop is the table saw setup. They
straightline wood for a small fee, and the way they do it is with a
power feed table saw. To line up the cut, there's an incandescent
light fixture with a string tied across it hanging from the ceiling of
the shop over the saw. The shadow that the string casts is how they
line up the board for straightlining. Pure freakin' genius.
I'll have to check that out next time I'm there. I was blown away by
the HUUUGE RAS they used to cut the hickory I bought for my last
project down to transportable lengths. I'm lucky to have some air
dried common to use, but man, they sure got some nice clear straight
