    Sail or Bail?

    I'm guessing it includes the slip. SB slips are often more the the value of the vessel docked in it.

    Aluminum fuel tank

    Moon, The tank is under the cockpit sole and above the keelson. Only about 5" from top of tank to bottom of cockpit. I will not cut an access hatch in it.

    Aluminum fuel tank

    I have an upright 70 gallon fuel tank without access ports. Top of tank installation is NOT an option. Side top is best. Tank is on centerline, apx 18"x30"x40" ish. Opinions, popcorn available on request.

    Iron Wood

    Wet I have the same list, but my question to the wood nerds is a proper match for what is have with a source in Southern Cali of even within the US. That is why I included the proper name.

    Iron Wood

    A question for the wood specialists. I need to replace a short section of rub rail. I was told that it is Philippine Iron Wood also know as Mangkono, Xanthostemon verdugonianus. What I was told the builder fell the trees for this and was unable to float them out of the forest, had to go back in and pull them out with a tractor. This makes sense as the boat was built in Subic Bay. Back on point, I have not been able to source this wood and wonder what might make a suitable replacement or better a source for the iron wood. I would need about 3 feet ot 8/4 X 4"
