Your project is probably already done but…

What I understand from a bunch of reading is that the only major difference between ‘marine grade’ and regular plywood is that marine grade has no surface knots and has no voids and the manufacturer certifies the boards as such. There is regular plywood which matches both of these requirements but does not go the level of certifying as such. The reason you’d want marine-ply would be for exterior and structural work, all of which would be sealed with epoxy, which would take care of the waterproof issue.

So, for your project, you’d be able to use any wood which would match.

-- I'm looking forward to regretting this.
