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.
