Cypress is our favorite boatbuilding wood.  Taxodium distichum grows in swamps of the US Southeast.  Possessed of a warm, buttery color, it's easy to work, strong, and extremely rot-resistant.  In spite of the natural oils that make it so durable, it accepts epoxy with alacrity.

This is the wood we use for all sheer clamps, chine logs, interior stringers, structural members such as daggerboard trunk logs, and so on.  We even use it for spars sometimes.

Finish: S4S (surfaced 4 sides)
