Hi James, thanks for the endorsement of Ipe for boat work. I've been wondering how it would perform. I think that's what I'm going to use on the toe rail, and put the joints as far forward as possible, where the hull line is straighter, and sees less traffic.
I've only seen this material in 3/4 inche thickness for deck planking. Ideally, I'd like to find 1.5" thick pieces, or 2x4s that I can shape. I'll have to check in with my local suppliers.
I checked the samson posts on my boat. they're still very solid, the but the copper nails on those little post caps have mostly come out.
