Using marine ply to build, restore or repair wooden boats


Marine Ply

“Break out another thousand” is said to be the acronym for boat and anything to do with restoring or repairing boats but this doesn’t have to be the case with our fantastic range of marine ply.  

When it comes to hobbies, some people play golf, some garden, some restore classic cars or motorbikes so why not build, restore or repair your very own wooden boat? Unlike with aluminium boats (tinnies) or fibreglass boats, with a wooden boat there is no reason you can’t do the bulk of the work yourself.  

North Geelong Timber Supplies stock a great range of marine ply so get in contact with us today.

Repairing and restoring your boat

If you have a damaged section of timber in your wooden boat you can easily remove it and replace with a new section of marine ply, bonding it in place with epoxy to ensure a strong resilient repair.  Plywood and epoxy has become an increasingly popular choice for timber boat building in recent years.

Building your own boat

For the more adventurous there are numerous resources online including plans, guides and even instructional videos on how to build a timber boat with marine ply.  Starting from fairly simple canoes, kayaks and dinghies all the way through to sailboats, yachts and cabin cruisers, there really is no limit to what you can build yourself.
