BOAT BUILDING SUPPLIES

NOAH'S MARINE SUPPLY
I got my plywood from Noah's. The price including shipping from Buffalo, NY, to Hattiesburg, MS was very reasonable. If you can beat Noah's price, let me know.
RAKA EPOXY
Reasonable prices and great, fast service. RAKA can't be beat for epoxy, epoxy fillers, and fibreglass.
US COMPOSITES
US Composties sells epoxy, epoxy fillers (like silica and microballoons), fibreglass and kevlar. I prefer RAKA for the epoxy, fibreglass, and microballoons and get kevlar and silica (carbosil) from US Composites. They ship fast and provide excellent service.
