“Dulcie” was built in 1902 (approx.) she has pitch pine planking on oak frames with pine decking.
My Boat, "Dulcie" is about to need some/all of her deck planks replacing.
At the moment, she has pine decks.
My question is this, what kind of pine should I use, as there is no mention of the kind of pine used.
The hull is pitch pine on oak.
The other question is:- when I cut the lengths of pine, should the edges be square, or should they be at a slight angle.
It looks fairly straight forward job????.
Looking forward to your response.
