This 13ft boat (above)is a single step runabout inspired by the Century "Whirlwind" design built with oak frames and mahogany planking.
African Mahogany The African mahogany is one of the tallest trees in the forest, often reaching 145 feet tall. It is very popular for boat building and furniture. Its cousin the Honduras mahogany is becoming more and more scarce, so woodworkers are turning to the African mahogany as a replacement. This wood is a light salmon color when first cut, and deepens to a darker reddish color upon exposure. Though sometimes the grain is straight, typically African mahogany has an interlocking grain.
