Okoume plywood = hen's teeth in Louisiana, or at least I have not found any. You can order it, but the shipping is $$$$. I recently bought marinate marine ply from Riverside Lumber in New Orleans. 1/4" is about 3 lbs. per sheet less than B.C. Pine, but very nice figure and no voids. Do a search for lumber stores in Houston. I think I recall a source there. It may be closer to you.
