Wood Question - Chines on a 10ft Pram
I'm doing a quick and cheap 10ft sailing pram, and trying to use the wood I have in hand.
Chines are to be 3/4x 1, and a little over 8'. Which would be the better choice, ripping them from a doug fir 2x4 (typical fast grown with giant growth rings), or a piece of old growth ponderosa pine (50-60 r/in) and I also have some ash, it will be sealed in epoxy as well.
Being in AZ, the wood is very dry and will definitely dry out between outings
