Interesting Stephen. When a young man of yesteryore, I used to help build clinker boats. Originally used Maranti strips, but later boats were built using marine ply.

Maranti was always chosen for its suitability for boat building and for its finished look in clear coat, most of the craftsmen would use it rather than ply as they were after looks not price ;) . When i was doing a course at Newport tafe a few year's back i would often spend my lunch time looking through the shipwrights building, it was like going for a walk through Mordialoc many years ago, there were some really nice boats to dream about :up: with lots of exotic timber lying around and there scent in the air.
