Marine safe wood

Just saw my price for teak and my jaw hit the floor. Any other species you guys would suggest for shelves on a boat?

Inside or outside? Ipe, Monkey pod, Jatoba & Cumaru but they are pretty steep in price also. If it is shelves just how many shelves are you going to build?

Marine grade teak plywood with solid teak edging. That's what my father uses on his boat. No issues for 30+ years.

+1 on that, Teak is expensive but for outdoor use, you get what you pay for

IROKO is an excellent substitute for teak. Both in color and performance.
about 1/4 to 1/3 the price of teak.

www.walllumber.com is a good supplier
