More Plywood

The finishing of the dinette base cabinets has been waiting on more plywood to cut one last piece. Our supplier was out of the least expensive Chinese made Sande marine plywood, so we ordered the next one up, Meranti faced Hydrotek. Turns out, due to their mistake, they sent an even better grade plywood, Aquatek (also Meranti faced and cored, BS1088 and Lloyds certified) at no extra charge. This stuff looks too nice for the base cabinets. This isn't rational, but as someone who has shelled out twice the cost for Coosa board, I feel guilty cutting into this stuff (what anything is rational about boats anyway?)
