Wooden Boat Repair Tips, Meranti Mahogany Marine Plywood Aft Cabin


So here’s that same Chris Craft, and what we did here was replace these back walls from the aft cabin. There’s the aft cabin in there, and these back two pieces of plywood were all rotted out, and we had to tear out the old one, and put in the new, you can see how. This is a, I think this is called meranti plywood. It’s an African mahogany type plywood. and it’s a lot of layers, and the difference between marine plywood and regular plywood is there is no voids in marine plywood to soak up the moisture, so that these are all void free. You can look along the edge, you won’t see any little gaps in that plywood. So I’ve sealed all that in, we went over the edge with the fibreglass to make a nice finish there that won’t split, and then screwed it, and SikaFlexed the wood together. Okay. That’s the ends of the aft cabin replaced. Closed Captioning by Kris Brandhagen. [email protected]

    It looked like your plywood is Mahogany veneered. Did it come that way or did you have to do the veneer?
