I just received a set of plans from B and B yacht designs. While they don't ship plywood, they quote a price of less than 48 dollars a sheet for 6mm 1088 okume. I'm in the Seattle area, so I can't buy from B and B, but I'm getting quotes of twice that price from local suppliers. It begs the question:

Where do you get your plywood and how much do you pay?

I just paid $88.41(including tax) for one sheet of 6mm occume BS 1088. This was from a plywood supplier, not a local lumber yard.

What's Edensaw quoting for 6 mil?

I learned recently that they've moved everything but veneer back over to PT. That's OK, because their new location in Tacoma is much too close, I'd be down there like an addicted gambler. Cheaper for me to go to the Emerald Queen than Edensdaw ;-)

48 a sheet? That's about what I paid at Edensaw. And free shipping with orders over 300.00

They quoted me a price of $ 103.69 for one sheet of 6mm. They said there would be a small discount for 5 to ten sheets, and a large discount if I bought a whole unit. (This quote is a few weeks old).

I just checked the email exchange to verify the number and it's right there in black and white. Must be a typo or something. I'm going contact them.

Which design are you building? I built a Spindrift nesting dinghy this winter.

I bought plans for a Spindrift 11n, and a Lapwing. The Spindrift will be first.

At Roberts Plywood, on Long Island New York, I paid $102.08 sheet for 6MM Okoume. Shelmarine, Lloyd's certified.

Hasn't the 1088 standard been done away with? I believe I read that here on this forum.

Ok, so here is my understanding after an email exchange with Edensaw. I was under a false impression. I thought BS1088 was synonymous with LLoyds certification. It ain't.

LLoyds 1088 (Made in France) was quoted today at $92.

Chinese 1088 $53.

That seems steep. The $65 sheet I quoted was the French stuff, Joubert I think. My price also included my 10% discount with them.

On second thought, I can't say for sure that my Joubert was Lloyds certified. I even found a very small void when I was cutting a scarf.

Anything in $50 - $65 range would be Chinese.
Anything in the $80 - $100 would be European.

The BS1088 Standard is still around and Joubert is Lloyds certified. Here is a copy of the certification that's on all of the crates.

I just bought 10 sheets 6mm 1088 from Noah's in Niagara Falls for $650 shipped to Missouri. They said it was the same quality or better than the joubert they had.

Bought two sheets of 6MM Shelmarine Lloyds Certified (with antifungal added) for 108 a sheet about 7 months ago.
