    We wholesale marine plywood . But I'm new to marine plywood.

    Have someone used marine plywood for boatbuilding before ?

    I think usually the wood for boatbuilding is solid lumber .

    Furthermore, I offered a price list of marine plywood for towood.com.

    Do you think the prices high or not ?

    Customers said our okoume marine plywood was very expensive .

    The price list for Okoume marine plywood:

    The price list for Eucalyptus marine plywood:

    I will never use a Chinese plywood on a boat--even if it passed the boil test. Too risky.

    What does the quantity CBM mean ?,PC i assume means per piece. I see that your location is listed as California,are you going to be wholesaling from a US location? if so any ideas on prices FOB CA?
    Unlike rasorinc i am not predjudiced against it just because it comes from China,(i am prejudiced against plywood made in the USA,we consistently produce the worst plywood on the planet) i would however need a bunch of samples that i can do my own tests on, plywood is not rocket science,you can look at it, cut it,boil it, leave it out in the weather etc, it is one of the few products that the end user can adequately test themselves.

    CBM is cubic meter.

    The prices are too high. If the quality is right, that would be the right price wholesale in EU or US, but BB/BB or AB/BB, no C core.

    The Eucalyptus is a good offer though.

    Marine plywood are high quality WBP plywood (water boiled proof plywood) . All marine plywood will pass boil test according to BS 1088 (marine plywood standard).

    Better melamine in plywood than dogfood, though.
