Subject: Interior wood

hi guys!
I'm currently rebuilding our mariner 32 #49 and was wondering if anybody knows what kind of wood was used for the interior like the wood battons on the bulk heads and the framings and trims throughout the interior. I just found out that it has all been stained ... at least my boat has...

cheers!

Thanks Bill.
I was wandering because the wood is quite yellow in colour after I sanded the red stain off, could it be that it is sap wood mahogany?

[> Philippine Mahogany -- Gitano, - Friday - 11/11/16 - 3:22pm

The specifications say Philippine Mahogany, but further research indicates that it is probably "light Maranti"
Here is what I found:

"Philippine” mahogany is a trade name applied to numerous different species of the genus Shorea. These species are common in the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia. Other trade names associated with the species are meranti, lauan and balau. Balau is the name usually applied to the species with heavier and tighter grain. Meranti can be sold as light meranti and dark meranti. Dark meranti is more dense and deeper in color than light meranti."
