1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I am selling my stash of beautiful AYC that is long length and old growth.

    529 lineal feet
    1” planed thickness
    7.5” actual width
    Lengths: 20’ (9 ea.), 16’ (7 ea.), 15’ (11 ea.), and 12’ (6 ea.)

    I bought this lumber about 15 years ago thinking I would build a boat. It has been stored in a barn since then. When I bought it, it had been stored outside under roof since the 1950’s or 60’s, so this lumber was cut about 60 years ago. It is likely from the Tongass National Forest in Southeastern Alaska. It is beautiful wood and is clear except for a few tight pin knots. The lumber is very flat and stable. Moisture content is 10%-12%.

    This lumber would make a couple of nice planked boats. Alternatively, if you wanted to make some money with it, it could be ripped into strips for stripped canoes (I don’t have the shop for this). If you are a wooden boat builder, you know how rare old growth lumber like this has become.

    $6 lf. OBO Lot sale only. Local pickup preferred. Located in Madison, Wisconsin.

    Thanks, bob
