    It is advertised as an exterior plywood, not necessarily for submerged use. However, if you are coating or laminating it, that shouldn't be a problem. The moisture content of up to 14% is a bit high, but under the 20% when rot starts. It doesn't say if the wood is treated and if it affects the adhesion of glues, which would be good to know. Otherwise, it looks like really nice plywood. What is the price?

    I know very little about the stuff. A guy at a timber yard suggested it - but I can find almost nothing on the subject - here is a UK price comparison ...
