teshannon I found my copy of the Tayana 42 brochure and it says "teak and spruce below deck".

poopdeckpappy Cd, I just went out in the shop, I have Burmese Teak, Honduras Mahogany, Red Oak and American Walnut.

I did the finger nail test ( just to see if I was loosing my mind ) and the Teak and Mahogany and Am Walnut are very close in hardness the red oak being the softest of the bunch

I too have worked with Hardwoods for awhile myself and I going to have to disagree ( most respectfully ) with ya.

Tuff teak

You re correct Poopydeck, had to replace 1" x 4" toerail on my morgan 43 , had to bend it. Believe me teak is anything but soft. Old weathered ,dried up, cheap teak might be a cork impersonator though. Worked with mahogany on my house stairs , flexible stuff but hard also but not Teak Tuff SB50

Most everything is teak but the 2" stripping appears to be some other species. It could be some variation of teak though.

teshannon Poop,
It's not one of those, a bit lighter than the Luan.

Have a look at Afromosia, it's what Hatteras uses on all of their bulkheads and counters, and call it teak interior.

Dissagree. Very, very soft (and dangerous, by the way).

I work with it a lot. You can whittle it with a knife. You can press down hard and leave a fingernail inprint in it when raw. Now, as it ages it gets harder (most woods do). But compared to mahog, it is soft. I am not saying it is as soft as pine, but close. Mahgonny, on the other hand, is at least as tough as oak and maybe tougher.

Just my opinion, PDP.
