I will be starting a project in the spring, a traditional chicken-breasted aux/sailing NJ Garvey (Barnegat Bay & Close Offshore)local clear planking is not a problem, the dead-wood and keel are. I need a 4" x 12" x 22' piece, an old beam will do. I will go a reasonable distance to get it. Cost is also a problem. (I'm not cheap, just poor!) any ideas or sources and advise would be welcome.
