When my brother needs decent ply for signs they go to Roy Le Tissier down Port Soif, he must have a supplier for decent marine grade stuff

I've used both Robbins and Totton, both seem good.

However, just because it's "Marine Ply" doesn't mean it's particularly good, or suitable for the job you're trying to do.

If you want a good wood, I found that the gaboon ply that Totton carry was much better wood (for my use, anyway) than the BS stamped marine ply they carry.

Agree 100% the Ribbins Elite is Gaboon, guaranteed 25 years, they do a Super Elite guaranteed 35years.
And its much lighter than your average builders grade marine crap too.
