Re: Australian boat building timbers
Where-abouts are you Kirk? Timber availability or certain species varies greatly depending upon location. You also should ensure as much as possible that you use like-for-like in terms of the weight and mechanical properties of the timber, as well as the ability to withstand the dreaded rot spores, particularly if the boat is to be kept outside in any kind of weather.
