    That is pretty common for locally made plywood in South America. Locally it is often referred of as "cedro blanco" or "cedro paraguayo". It is of medium density and similar to luan. It will work fine for a stitch and glue. Yo soy del otro lado del charco, Uruguay.

    Yes, I know. Here is so different to others parts like north america or europe. Find a good quality marine plywood is very hard. For now, the only thing I know is, the plywood is marine, and is imported from brazil. Tomorrow I will talk to a local boat builder who sent me the info where I can find marine plywood! thanks!

    Maybe M boats or Tarrab Yachts are willing to give some leads where to get good stuff . . ?

    I did built and repair many boats before leaving the "tierrita". I apprenticed with a gallego shipwright called Manolo Crende in Montevideo.

    I'm glad to see Terry's website is still online for the valuable info to be found there... (see the thread: Ancient Kayaker RIP)

    The Ancient Kayaker Sailboat Dace

    ‘‘ - Dace is no more!

    Alas, Dace was parked out in the yard for several years without maintenance due to a long illness which stopped me doing much at all. When I returned to health I found the plywood on the bottom had delaminated and much of the oak trim had rotted. The oak trim would have been simple to replace but because of the way I built Dace the bottom was impossible to repair, simpler to build another. Sadly, little Dace has been scrapped.

    This was an educational experience, because the plywood was purchased from a reputable supplier and carried a BS1088 stamp, which used to be an indication of quality. The BS1088 standard is voluntary and apparently anyone can use the stamp whether they adhere to the standard or not. In future I will look for a standard that is monitored like Lloyds, or buy BS1088 plywood made by a reputable manufacturer like Joubert. Live and learn! ’’

    Congrats on your decision to build the Bateau C17. I built one with a center console, which was a departure from the original plans that had a small cuddy cabin.
    Good marine grade plywood ...has waterproof glue...lots of veneers...and just as important.....NO VOIDS.
