Wood choice, for backing support, question ??
I am looking over a head compartment rehab. The owner/seller messed up, did not know what he was doing, and quit. What a mess..
Rather than spend a huge amount of money, I got thinking ??? as I like to do.
Put a patch over, use ply. But then I wondered ?? What type of wood is
appropriate as a stud, or backing, for finish ply in a head area? Of course, at home, I'd run down to HD, or Lowes, pick up a couple of 2/4 x 8's,, cut/nail, then the finish ply would be screwed up nailed to the studs.. Must the stud, or support wood inside a sailboat be a hard hard wood? Can you use a softer, easier to work with wood, stud, which can be purchased at Home Depot?
Wood .. cut me some wood.. of slack.. or slack wood.. but don't slack off.
