Deck planks


These are the sample planks done by my cabinet making friend. They are done in maple...he is going to try it on teak now, hopefully with no issues as it is an even harder species of wood.

Dip strips in alcohol, that may help with the brittleness. I do that to the strips from old kits and wrap it around tubing to make sail hoops. The alcohol evaporates pretty quickly, as opposed to soaking them in water.

One thing my father did on his Emma was craft an extended rudder. I've seen others choose to do this for more commanding control while under sail.
