I was at the local lumber yard today and saw a wood I had never seen before; marketed by Weyerhaeuser and grown on plantations; it is a hybrid of two Eucalyptus species and they call it Lyptus. The boards I saw were 5/4 and 8/4 and at first glance I thought it was Honduran Mahog but it appeared a bit denser. They are making flooring from this stuff also and probably plywood. Might be worth a look as boatbuilding material
