Plan to been construction on a 16 foot double ender with transom this winter. Much of the suggested wood for framing (with the exception of douglass fir) is not available in my area of the country (Kentucky). Is white oak too heavy? Can anyone suggest a supply house? I have looked at Noah on line. And generally, how much board feet would I need for framing material? My boat will be modeled from a Woodie Hindman design. Lots of questions with more to come. Thanks, James Browning
Just starting on construction. Looking for ideas, experience in choosing stain (if any) and other finishing touches.. as well as FYI's and heads-up on avoiding problems.
