Sander, Not stupid, bu possibly not brilliant either.

'Marine' ply, apart from being glued together with waterproof glue (as are most plywoods these days), is also free from cracks, voids and knot holes in all it's laminations. This matters when you are bending it to make hulls. If you can satisfy yourself that the the interior laminations are good (maybe by cutting or breaking up a sample), you could use the wood. I think birch is somewhat heavier than okume as well. The link below is to CLC's page about luan plywood.
