    I am seeing marine ply, 4x8 sheets, 9mm for 26.60 au per sheet. With the current good usd exchange rate, this is only $20 usd. Am I really seeing this or am I mistaken? Any aussies out there that can confirm? Thanks mates.

    Sounds dodgy to me, if It's Australian and marine ply the standard should be AS/NZ 2272, what you're probably seeing is not going to meet the BS or AUS standard, you might be lucky but I'd expect to pay 3-5 times that for something I'd be happy to put into an enduring product.
