Marine Grade Plywood
Thin sheets of wood veneer are used to make plywood. Arranging the sheets in alternating layers are what give this panel its strength. Waterproof glue in marine plywood protects it from moisture when it is exposed to water and high humidity. This exterior glue line is what keeps the plywood from delaminating in inclement weather. This is an important design characteristic if you are building a boat hull with plywood. If the hull’s protective finish is damaged and the wood gets wet, the plywood will remain structurally intact.
