Hi , Here's a newbie question from someone with very little knowledge about wood. Im going to replace the buttons that support the bunk canvas on my 1968 contessa 26. Should I be specific in choosing the wood for this part? Hard ? Soft ?

Most of the internal woodwork on a standard boat is either teak or marine ply. The former is hard to get hold of in decent quality but there are lots of good alternatives. The framework on my boat is all teak but the berth cushions sit on sheets of marine ply cut to suit. Simples!
