With the Euro down, the price of Vendia is almost down to Okoume level and well below Sapele. Would there be any interest from any builders in the Maine area in going in on a shipment? A pallet shipment would add to the cost, but they advertise it would have enough to build 10 small boats. I estimate my next build would take 2 "small boats" worth.

There is no rush on my part, but I'd like to take advantage of the exchange rate. As they sell planks it will take some calculating to figure out what to order.

If you're not familiar with Vendia it is mentioned in this month's issue of WB and there have been previous Forum posts. It is a sustainable pine product made of sliced veneers. From what I've read it is a high quality product and I'd love to give it a try. Let me know if you might be interested in going in on a shipment.
