Re: Deadwood and mast timber in Oz
Andrew, what is the timber specified in Ian's drawings? I'd want to match it with something weight for weight and mechanically very similar. If the boat is going to live on a trailer I wouldn't be too concerned about the durability of the species, so long as you've primed, bedded down and painted the timber very well.
