    Doing a little project and was wondering if anyone knows where I can buy a 4x8x1/2 sheet of plywood. I live just south of Kalamazoo.

    I know it's out of the way but Sequin Lumber in Bay City is where I bought mine. They had 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" marine rated plywood in stock. Maybe try a lumber yard on the west coast or call a marina repair shop over that way.

    Look up L.L. Johnson in Grand Rapids. The people there are very helpful.

    Any lumber yard can get it if they dont stock it, I would just open the yellow pages and start dialing to find one that stocks it. I bet one sheet is over $100.00. anyone know for sure?

    3/4" was 75.00 a sheet but they stocked it already. The local yard told me they had to buy a full bunk of it so they didn't stock it as it wasn't a big demand item.

    depending on application, there are other exterior grades that may be suitable for your use at lower cost (AC uses exterior glue).

    why do you want marine grade?
    only difference between marine grade and exterior grade is the number of voids you may find from knot holes. if thats not an issue for your app. save some money.
