Default Where to buy marine plywood in South FL?

OK, so I know there are a few local boat building guru's on here. Where can I get the best deal on 3 sheets of 1/2" to do my transom? I dont really care if it is some exotic wood, just regular marine grade(unless you guys tell me different). I am seriously considering ripping the old one out and replacing rather than reinforcing the existing one(since the damn hardware is so much $$ for a temprary band aid), but $$ and time is tight, gotta make a decision soon, so I dont lose the whole summer I plan on starting one way or the other this weekend, and need to know if I can get it locally for a decent $.

When we replaced the gas tank in the Sutphen we put a new floor in it. Bought the marine plywood @ The home depot on Coppans rd.

I know some depot's carry it, as I bought some cutoff/small pieces when I was doing the interior. I will check mine out west, if not I will check copans, are you talking about the one just west of 95?

Rick, we bought a piece in Boynton (Woolbright and 95) when we did the Baja engine hatch remember?
We resined the whole thing and padded it and put vinyl over the whole thing after 2 days of sanding and installing all the mirrors under it.
