Exterior grade plywood on the Rio Dulce?

Yep, it's true. Until now, boaters seeking exterior plywood would have to travel to La Ceiba, Honduras and, fingers crossed, the lumberyard there might have some in stock.

Otherwise, they'd have to just settle for some of the local interior grade stuff which, unless immediately coated with epoxy, would soon take on the characteristics of soggy cardboard.

W&L Comercial also stocks a good grade of exterior plywood in 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 inch thickness.

 Local carpenter Rodger (RaJa) Hanks, being somewhat of a skeptic, bought a couple of sheets and cut the corners off to see if the glue was actually waterproof. He tossed the corners into a pot of boiling water, let it "cook" for a few hours then let it dry for a day or so.

"It didn't delaminate or anything," he noted. "Good stuff".

Ice chests and wine also available!

However, Rodger cautions, this is not true marine plywood. "You can't find that anywhere that I know of in Central America."

But it is made with resorcinol glue which is impervious to fresh or salt water. "Just be sure to inspect each sheet carefully, looking along the edges for any openings or separations in the laminate," he advises.

In addition to plywood, Lorena now has a good selection of yellow and white pine stacked in their warehouse in various thicknesses and widths.

To find Comercial W&L, just walk past the intersection of the road to San Felipe for a couple of blocks. It's located across the street from BanRural -- on the right hand side of the road in the large shopping center where Rosita's Restaurant, Pez Vela Marine Services, and Abel's paint store are located.
