on another site someone was asking that question.  I refinished mine on the port side, but I really am not sure of what the wood is.  maybe a cedar?

H&L used to be the supplier to CTY.  See the item on the bottom right.

Don't know for sure, I've not had them off or had a reason to find out.  My somewhat limited knowledge of wood leads me to think Shamrock is ash.  Same as Stu said.

Thanks all.  that makes sense, especially for the info on the catalogue.  The site is a facebook DIY which is really interesting to watch all the different projects.  interesting that they say its ash glued onto plywood.  I thought it was quite thin, as i refinished the wood and pulled off the inner window frame.

Randy, I can confirm the slats are definitely Ash.
I pulled the whole interior apart this past winter and wasn't able to come up with enough Ash to make all four panels so I went with clear Douglas Fir and stained it. Very happy with the results!!!
The photos show the old and new standing next to each other.
I did glue the individual slats to 1/4" plywood so they are a wee bit thicker, but now that they are installed,  you can't tell.

Randy : It is ash batten strips and I got from H&L. 

I covered the dark plastic sliders in the salon with that ash batten strips.  makes it much lighter down below.  I wrote an Mainsheet tech note article w/pictures. Just used contact cement over the sliders. Easily done!   :thumb:
