    Look on line for Okume Marine Plywood...you want BS1088...(BS stands for British Standard.) Most places will ship unless you can find a place close to you.

    Let us know if you can find anything. We can help more if you canít find any.

      One of the best Okume suppliers in the Midwest is Homestead Hardwoods in Vickory Ohio. 419-684-5275. They stock both Joubert and Bruynzeel plywood. Their handling and shipping are very good.

          Race boats I have built in the past I used Ocume in 3 and 6 mm for the skins but for the transoms I used exterior AA grade Fir pieces 3/4"x 2 and epoxied 3mm Okume skins to the outsides sides and has lasted well. Such small pieces you need for the transom are available pre-cut llike 24 x 24 etc. at local lumber yards.

          If that 2 @ 20 x 20 is all you need pretty expensive to order + ship 4' x 8'x 3/4 Okume and have about a 1/2 sheet left unless you need it? I assume you will skin the boat with 3 mm and 6mm Okume and frames of spruce with 6 mm gussets?

            Laminate your own. Use a combination of 3 mm and 6mm (or whatever you have) to get desired thickness. Nice and strong.

              Thanks for all of the advice.. Respectfully, advice is appreciated.. What I am looking for is to find that person,, with 3/4" plywood, that is going to the
              Grove, Oklahoma race.. This would be beneficial for freight savings.. Also,, The Sorensen plans call out for a laminated transom which I prefer not to do.
              If I can't find what I need by this week-end,, then I will ask for quotes from whoever wants to help me succeed.
