November 3, 2011:
12 pieces of 1x6x10 radiata pine (to be used for stringers, chine logs, doublers and miscellaneous timbers as needed)

I don't plan to post photos of every materials purchase but because this order is THE first batch of materials to begin the build, here are a couple of photos:

Twelve uncut 1x6x10' pieces of radiata pine (Monterrey Pine). These will be milled to size for the stringers, chine logs, doublers and miscellaneous timbers as needed.



After a bit of work with the band saw and thickness planer: pieces to be scarphed together (two pieces glued together into longer pieces) for the stringers and chine logs. The doublers and miscellaneous timbers will be cut from the 10' lengths as needed.
