Description

Douglas Fir marine plywood is very strong, bends well, and is of medium weight. It is the cheapest of options for marine plywood, and the faces may have up to five patches or repairs but no voids. Although the grading term is no longer in use, a BS 6566 grade could be applied to our Douglas Fir plywood. It excels in all things except appearance.

The lower BS 6566 grade means that the appearance of the Douglas Fir plywood is not as good as the higher BS 1088 grade Bruynzeel Okoume Gaboon plywood, and knots and patches may be apparent on the Douglas Fir plywood, yet it still meets the high standards for weather and boil proof (WBP) glue that is key to keep the plies from delaminating.

The early and late growth common with a softwood can leave an uneven surface that will telegraph its inconsistencies through a fiberglass or epoxied surface. This is the plywood to use in the many areas where it will not be seen. The natural weather resistance that is inherent with Douglas Fir makes this an outstanding plywood for marine use.
