    Default redwood for spars

    Just ordered plans for the CIY 16. Starting to source lumber. $400 to order sitka spruce for just the mast. I'm searching locally (Chattanooga, TN). I've found some "clear heart redwood". I think I can get enough for all the spars out of two 2"x6"x20' for $150. A couple of these pieces from the pics look pretty tight grained. Is redwood suitable?

    The mast is 17' and will carry a 105 sqft balanced lug sail. I'm just a recreational sailor and the boat will not be pushed hard.
