Re: Beneteau Halts Production?
I know that Bene, in France, agreed to some sustainable blah, blah, blah, when it comes to teak. There are places they will not buy it from, because its not harvested sustainably, or the natives are tortured or some such. Limits access for them.
I believe there is some limited teak left aboard (maybe toe rails, trim, comings, floor grating, I don't know). But Mark is right about the wall panels. They are just "manufactured" teak, with a grain pattern painted on.
