Tohatsu dinghy wood floor panel

Hi,
Has anyone come across 23mm plywood that is a marine grade.
I need to change a section on my tohatsu.
I have been looking today and its very available in the USA but struggling to find any here.
Thanks for looking.

Would this 18mm Marine ply do the job, plus If you laminate with glass and resin it would soon be up to 23mm.

I like the idea of glueing the 12mm together. Hadn't thought of that.
Cheers. Am still sure some one would know where I can get 23 mm though. I was thinking about having the piece I need doing made out of alloy. That would probably be even harder to find plus more expensive.

sorry Dragonhawk ficht that sheet is not quite big enough and it needs to fit alloy rail tracks that accommodate 23mm ply.
Cheers for responding though.

Use 22mm ply available in most sheet mat suppliers but not your usual sheds,,by the time youve painted it ,it will be near enough

I have never seem metric lumber in canada much less than the states, it is sold by imperial measurements
3/4"=19mm-actual 18.2
7/8"=22.2mm-actual 21.4
1"=25.4mm-actual-24.61

plywood is not available in 15/16" =23.8mm that i am aware of. my guess is the aluminum extrusion is 1" inside dimension. build up a couple off thinner layers to get the 23mm thickness required.

Okay just found out the listed dimension for plywood and true dimension do not match. true dimension is 1/32"=0.79mm thinner

dobra, there is a specalist plywood company near me that has been taken over by a larger timber merchant that has branches much nearer to you, try a google search for timbmet . they will move stuff between branches when a lorry is that way , so would cut traveling down.
stonehouse is the depot that keeps most ply, and last time I was there had a good range of marine ply, could be worth a call.

Google: Robbins plywood

They have 22mm marine ply or you could laminate up their 8mm plus 15mm marine ply to give 23mm but not cheap
