or marine lumber outfits that sells bamboo
for spars ?

I can find are decore and garden places.I
am hoping to find a marine related outfit
so they understand that they need to be
straight and sound.I vagely remember an
an add in print some time ago about
bamboo spars...?

Any help would be much appreciated !
Thanks in advance !

I don't know any specific marine sites, but maybe this will help.

http://www.acethatch.com/products/raw/bamboo/solid_bamboo_poles

Also do a google search on "structural bamboo"

Stuff grows like...well...weeds up here in the PNW.

Check out this list of PNW Bamboo businesses at http://agsyst.wsu.edu/bambiz.htm

Especially check out Bamboo Hardwoods (http://www.bamboohardwoods.com/), specialists in bamboo building products. They also supply fly-rod grade Tonkin cane.

Some of these people will supply you with plants if you want to grow your own, but beware. Bamboo is a rhizome like crabgrass and once established is difficult to eradicate. Make sure you install rhizome barriers when you plant.

Hope this helps.
