Re: Bowspit for BCC

I have not made one, but I just bought a new one from the factory. They are
made of vertical grain Douglas fir. It looks like they use 2 x 8 lumber and
glue it together then shape it.

Subject: [bcc] Bowspit for BCC

I plan to build a new bowsprit for our BCC. My choice of wood is
quarter-sawn (vertical grain) fir. Has anyone built a bowsprint from
slab-sawn fir? Slab-sawn fir is common to most lumber yards.
