Ian sat on our Burma (Myanma) Teak stock all quarter sawn ready to cut off the deck strips and coverboards,margin planks, cap rails, etc There's about 2 tons here, half of our stock - the rest is for the interior fitting out.
Well - here's the new site, looks quite nice here in the sunshine - but when the wind blows..........
Sitka Spruce for making the 67ft and 57ft masts.They will be hollow and oval in shape,when they are finshed and varnished ( lots of varnish!) they will be real works of art !
Ian is here in the container storing the Sitka - 38ft lengths with NO knots, straight as a die!On the left is the mahogany constructional vaneer to cover the steel work of the wheelhouse,the darker timber is more teak boards planed ready for use.
