      That is the good one.
      I have about 300 bf that I salvaged from an old building. They now are at least 98 years old.
      You must see the difference between the two after you clear the surface with the planer.

      I've seem lots of SYP at wood salvagers but it is $7/bf. lots of long lengths. If you use Doug Fir it should be epoxy encapsulated and check ring spacing.

      The plans call for Yellow Pine in the keel, and a couple of other areas. SYP is a bit sparse here. Does anyone here know if Doug Fir or Juniper wold be an acceptable substitute?
