    Hello, Has anyone out there use cedar for outwales? My boat came with spruce and I am ready to make some new ones. I was at Home Depot looking at their 16 ft stock of spruce and the best grade they have is #2 with quite a lot knots. The 16 ft cedar looked a little more clear and was thinking of giving it a try. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    In the home stretch now. Made and installed outwales. Made 4,used 3. The first one broke. Started with the turkey fryer but ended up using a hand held streamer with good results. Stained them then put down 3 coats of varnish. I'm going to laydown 1 or 2 more coats of primer,sand then start with the Kirby's semi-gloss I have.
