Re: ply wood from boatcraft or plywood + panal

Hi Mark I claim no expertise here but I do know that the Llodys certifciation isn't as stringent as the Australian. I'd check the weight as the cheaper panel may only have gaboon on the outside and a heavier core. I'd check the number of layers too. It's a big price difference, might be work buying ...

Certainly didn't come to that portion of the cost for me as I did most of it myself... I found some of the internal systems very time consuming, especially the electrica...
