The former captain who was on the ship when it was delivered from the yard in India thinks that it came on board at the yard.
So far it has escaped being thrown out as garbage due to its sheer size that makes it a bit awkward to move around.
I would like to bring it to Denmark and mill it on the sawmill, but my luggage allowances aren't that high.
So in a rare moment of sensible brain activity from my side, I offered it to my new ship, since I figured that they would have more use for it than an industrial garbage facility.
I haven't measured the actual length of the pieces, but a quick guesstimate is that there are two short pieces of 3' each, and the one long piece is 6'. All the pieces are solid 12x12", so technically it is something like 144 bf of teak.
Someone out here for some strange reason decided to crosscut about one foot of the length of one of the pieces. I have no idea why (and no for once it wasn't me who did it).
Is this trash?
Or is it a treasure?
