"Shamrock V" J Boat


Slept on it, tweaked it, and I'm going to live with it...

My next step was to seal the underneath side of the deck (no pictures), prime the deck for staining. (Pictures are of primed wood only). Originally, I was going to use a Golden Oak stain; however, I selected an amber marine varnish, so I may go straight to varnishing.

Regarding the wood I selected, I used alder, two types of mahogany, and a hardwood we brought back from Costa Rica when I was a child. This wood was used for the king plank and toe rails. I originally thought it was a type of purple heart; however, now I'm not sure. The wood is heavy, bridle, and hard. Any thoughts on what it may be?
