If you can give as much information about the project that you are working on e.g. what you are building: Dinghy / yacht type etc. and also some pictures if you have any, it would help.
What sort of quantities do you require?
Your link http:www.robins.co.uk didn't work.

If you can visit Robbins, tell them exactly what the application is. 1088 is the normal "marine" grade but there are three considerations. One is the type of resin used to bond the plies, another is the number of voids hidden in the interior (there shouldn't be any for 1088) and the third is the type of wood used for the plies. Forget the latter, and after a few years you could find three layers of fragmented resin separated by variuos bits of fibre. The weight of a board is quite a good rough indicator.
