Does anyone know the history of the whole idea of having a striped sole. Teak makes sense on a boat but what advantage is their to striping it with holly?
I know it is traditional but where did the tradition come from? Who did it first?
The only thing I can think of is that solid teak is too dark and the added the holly to lighten it up a bit.
