    Red face Marine ply offcuts

    I was looking for a source of small ply offcuts -less than say 3 inches square and wondered if anyone knew a source in Hampshire/Surrey area -having called local timber yard they don't seem to have offcuts and sell in large sheets.

    Hi Ashtead. You need to be a bit more specific. Thickness, dimensions, grade?

    Just use exterior and seal it.

    Or if it is for backing pads, polypropylene - cheap chopping boards.

    Thanks all . Yes it would be for small pads to take fixings in locker. I thought if I glassed the pads in I could fix some rails to them to take lines etc.

    Is this for hanging mooring warps etc in a cockpit locker? If so then suggest you consider using goat pegs from B&Q they come on wood backing, either 4 or 6 pegs and are finished with a durable plastic type coping. I glued them to a bulkhead with a grab adhesive and hang warps with just a single overhand knot. Works well.

    However if you want to glass pads in then just buy a small sheet of WPB ply from the same source and cut your own pads.

    Exterior grade would Last forever if your glassing them in totally sealed and dry.

    Thanks Tranona- I haven't heard of pegs for goats but will search however based on comments it seems I can just use exterior if not available.

    Thanks Steve.

    I seriously and soberly read "goat pegs" this morning, visualising a row of carefully and very specifically-shaped dowels in a traditional craftsman's workshop.
