Re: genuine mahogany

I can meet anyone half way with it, if its a reasonable location, especially if its in the southern portion of the country almost anytime. Its really weather dependent of course. Upon checking shipping costs in reply to an inquiry, i...

Re: genuine mahogany

That's fine Shawn. There are several species of mahogany and several that are being used that do not have the color tones and grain as the traditional mahoganies . I will say that we always stain the wood too, which will maintain uniform grain and color long term.

Re: How Long Does a Plywood Boat Last Sitting in Salt Water?

Well currently the choices of plywood is the key factor when talking about longevity right behind maintenance of a finished plywood boat. But people that normally ask the question about how long plywood last would probably not be concerned about wood in their homes that rots on a regular basis and r...

Re: Modifed panel doors on the cheap

That's one of my custom designs, outboard powered with a 115 Suzuki that I am almost done with for coastal cruising. Its really nothing more than a wet condo with a point on one end.
