RE: [AtkinBoats] Re: Fore An' Aft
He is right on about Long leaf YP these days. I used very large timbers from old factories for a 34 cutter I have. The structure of that wood was markedly different that current or even a few decades on YP. This holds true or even more so for Doug Fir.
WO and Bronze -- very good combination.
White oak is a good substitute. Today's SYP is totally different, they now altered the genetic of the seeds to speed up the growt and the actual SYP is no more hard and rot resistant like the old.

I have a Fore n Aft built in the 50s, the keel and deadwood are white oak, which is great, SYP just lasts longer.

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?
