We are about to put a new deck on a large classic sailing boat. Currently it has the original traditional laid deck, but we will put a ply sub deck and teak on top.

I would like some oppinions on plywood. Some shipwrights have quoted on using "marine ply". An Oakham based plywood. Others using a Lloyds approved mahogany Ply. Is marine ply soutible for a deck?

also fastenings.... joining the plywood to the deck beams is it worth going for silica bronze or will stainless steel be fine?

Thanks
