    Question plywood strength

    I am looking to conserve weight but not strength or quality on marine plywood. Therefore would the okoume plywood of 5/32 thickness with three ply be similar in strength to the 1/4 Meranti which is also three ply? Thanks for the help

    Our ?? Meranti is 5 ply(misprint), and would be much stronger than the 3 ply Okoume. A good compromise would be the 5 mm 5 ply BS 1088 Okoume. Not quite as strong as the Meranti, but about 20% lighter.
