I am putting in a new stringers for the cabin sole
. Part of a rewarding process of reducing the number of steps up and down in the boat.
I have read lots on CF of various peoples' experiences and advice, but I am having trouble deciding on a suitable timber for the stringers. Most of the suggestions I have found are for timbers not easily found in Australia
Can anyone suggest some Australian timber types that would suit? The stringers would cross a (usually) dry bildge and have a maximum span of about 3 feet at the widest point, down to 2 feet at the bow. They would be glassed to the hull
, at least at the ends, and the cabin sole
will be plywood
of a suitable thickness.
