Can i replace a Mahogany plank with Iron wood, Maple, Ash, White Oak, or Birch?
I may need to replace a plank or two above and below the waterline of a 1967 Pacemaker 31 Flybridge Sedan Cruiser.
I have an abundance of trees, a portable lumber mill and 20" planer so it pains me to purchase lumber of any kind. Ironically, there isn't a single Mahogany tree growing here in Southwestern Ontario.
Boat has 1"x4" mahogany on 1"x2" steam-bent white oak ribs (I have red oak).
I also have several species of softwoods in addition to the above hardwoods.
Can anyone tell me if there is a suitable match for mahogany...I suspect I know the answer, I just need to hear someone say it.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
