Subject: doug fir for the sprit?

Steve, what do you think of DFir for the bow sprit? Clear fir is easier to source here than Sitka spruce (which is to say DFir is everywhere and SSpruce takes some hunting).

That's what I used. Doug Fir is technically not a fir but is actually a spruce related to Sitka and thus makes a suitable spar wood. I'll use it for the sprit and for the booms if I ever make new ones but I would still find Sitka Spruce if I were to make new masts.
