Dave, as much as I like the aesthetics of teak and holly (OK, really, I think anything else just doesn't belong in a boat) you might want to look around for alternatives. Someone used to make honeycomb panels, a hollowcore honeycomb of impervious material skinned on both sides so it looks like 3/4" plywood but weighs less than half as much. You know, get the dead weight out of the boat, eliminate any questions of rot, look into newer materials and maybe make it better than new?
