Here's some resources
Edensaw, http://www.edensaw.com is good.
West Wind Hardwood, up in BC, http://www.westwindhardwood.com/ is also good.
Crosscut Hardwood, http://www.emersonhardwood.com/, stocks marine ply as well:
4100 1st Avenue South
Crosscut parent company is Emerson Hardwoods, and there are Crosscut stores in both Portland, OR and Eugene, OR.
If you want local, this place is even open on Sundays:
Home Builders' Center
1110 W Nickerson
Seattle, WA 98119
also stocks marine ply and good boat lumber. They're right near the Ballard Bridge and the shipyards nearby make it useful for them to stock the stuff. They're and Ace Hardware store as well.
Compton Lumber,http://www.comptonlbr.com/, (across the street from Crosscut Hardwood, above) also carries marine ply as well as other hardwoods and boat lumber...don't know if they carry stuff other than douglas fir marine ply, though.
You might also check out Olson Lumber:
9300 Aurora N
Seattle, Washington 98103
Olson is now owned by Dunn Lumber, but Mr. Olson will be hanging on for a few years. Some of Olson's specialities are bending (green) white oak and big -- try 8x16 -- FOHC (free of heart center) douglas fir timbers. Here's the Dunn Lumber page for some of the stuff at the Olson yard: http://store.dunnlum.com/builderwire...categoryid=587
Hope this helps!
