Tayana 42 interior wood?

Does anyone know what species of wood Tayana used other than teak for the interior wood work? Specifically the vertical 2" wide strips used on all the walls. Thanks.

I am almost positive that ours is teak too. I guess I have not paid that close of attention. It may vary from boat to boat as they are semi-custom in many respects. Ours (Pops) is a '88-89.

Ask teshannon. He has a T-Vancouver 42 also.

If it is really light, it could be holly. Catalina used that for a while.

Not sure if I helped.. I tried.

I think, along with asian teak they used east asian mahogany, the problem these days are most exotics are listed under the ESA, what you'll most likely end up with will be a plantation grown exotic, which will differ slightly in grain and color with the original.

I honestly don't know. It appears too light to be teak but too dark to be holly. I suggest you try asking the question on the TOG site. I'm sure you'll get an answer there and now I'm curious also.

Agreed. Please let us all know, esp if I am wrong.

then again, it might not be original to the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have sanded clean the piece I had removed and it is not teak or holly. Another opinion was that it was possibly cedar.

See if any of these come close, they're 3 different species of what is marketed as East or S.East asian mahogany


Meranti




Keruing




Lauan




I would definitly rule out the Lauan
