I know that a few years back I came across a wooden kayak sales site for a company in upstate New York that sold models with sapele decks. Can't remember the company name. May have been a Native American company, but I'm not sure. Some of the other builders may know the site, or you could google around to find it. They might give you help on the the characteristics of sapele in kayak building.

I've seen some boats with sapele decks, as well as some yacht interiors. Pretty stuff, undoubtedly.
