Your best bet is BS-1088 grade ply. It is usually a mahogany but can be some other woods. It is a ply standard that calls for no voids throughout the panel and glue rated for 20yr immersion. I'm not aware of any Doug Fir ply that is made to that standard and I'm not familiar with Cumarru. The wood in this particluar case is less important than what standard it is made to. Also take care as to the weight of the panels. When I was looking there was a significant difference between two different BS-1088 panels. One was a Mahogany (lighter and the one I bought) vs the other (which I can't remember now). I hope this helps. My boat is still on the hard also and I'm faced with rebuilding my boat shed which collapsed under a recent and extremely heavy (for us) snowfall.

With all this information from all of you, I feel like a can pick out the best grade of wood for my repairs on Shadow. You can't know how much this will help. Yours truly, Kathy
