Hi Andrew,


Thanks for the follow up. No complaints so far, it beautiful looking ply. I'll send you an update and some pics when it's more boat-shaped.

Hello Andrew,

I received the plywood this morning in first class condition.The packing was excellent and the ply was every bit as good as your description.  Thank you for your help I can highly recommend your product and service.

Hi Andrew

The packaging was excellent and the ply survived the trip just fine. The ply is great to work with and the quality is consistently good throughout the all sheets.

Hi Andrew,

Quick note to say I picked up the ply from the depot today and it is now safely in the shed. Thanks for arranging everything and especially the care in which you packaged the order, it arrived completely damage free.  Now on to building!

Hi Andrew,

I finally managed to get down to the shipping agents yesterday, and picked up my beautifully and carefully packaged ply.  I'm *very* happy with the material - it's very light, and has a nice grain, and certainly looks as though I will be able to build nice boats from it

Hi Andrew,

The ply has been picked up and is beautiful.  We both thank you for your prompt delivery. Now he can get onto the next stage of the boat.


Good morning Andrew,

I took delivery of the ply yesterday. It is now safely stowed in my garage and I will take it to my work site on the weekend. I was very impressed with the packaging and everything seems to be in good shape. Thanks again for your great service Andrew.
