  1. Where to Get Okume Near Baton Rouge

    I have not tried Gueydan or Manning Lumber, so I'll contact them and see. Thanks for the feedback on Cypress, I hadn't thought of water absorption.
  2. First time boat builder here with a few questions, getting ready to build a Spindrift 10. First, does anyone know of a lumber yard in South-central Louisiana that carries 6mm Okume plywood? (I am in Baton Rouge) I have contacted a few so far. Riverside Lumber in New Orleans carries Meranti, but I was hoping to save the weight by building with Okume. I haven't found anyone else who even carries Meranti. I will be transporting the boat on top of the family van, and eventually it will become my kids' boat, so light weight is important. Second, has anyone used Cypress for the solid wood parts? It seems like it would work fine and give the boat a nice Louisiana look. And it is easy to find around here...
