Small piece of marine plywood

I need some good marine plywood to patch a hole in my flybridge deck. Maybe 9 inches square, 1/2 inch thickness. I hate the thought of having to buy a whole 4x8 foot sheet for $100+ just for this.
Anyone have some scraps they'd be willing to sell for a reasonable price?
One or two pieces this approximate size should fit easily in a USPS Priority Mail box.

Thanks

Try some boat yards in your area. They should have a scrap pile.

Try a local lumber yard. They often have 1/2 or 1/4 sheets at a much lower price.

Possible Option

This is just a guess on my part, but what about ordering a small piece from here (assuming this type of ply is acceptable).
ROYAL MARINE A-A FIR PLYWOOD from Aircraft Spruce

Used them a lot in my airplane days and was never disappointed with what I received. Looks like a 1/2 inch 2'x2' square is only $11.25 plus ship.

Can you use a piece of 1/2”composite?

Paul,

I think I've got some in the garage. It's too dark out there to tell now. Call me tomorrow and I'll tell you what I have. I'll be in Vallejo Muni Marina on Friday if you want to come by and grab it. I'll PM you my ph number.

Thanks for the good ideas, everybody. I'm sure one of these will work!
