Why Oak hull frames (ribs) on my boat while carvel planks are mahogany.?
I own a 1966 Pacemaker 34.
I have the original purchaser's owner's manual.
They say the Hull frames (ribs) on my boat are made of oak while carvel planks are mahogany.
My bilge srtingers are made of Mahogany.
Why are the ribs of the hull made of OAK?
most of them need replacement and I wonder if I should substitute them for another type of wood.
I'm at the start of this project and want to make the right call.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
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.
