I found a great source of long lengths of pitch pine, that I used for re-planking. Try Lawsons Sawmills, New Lane, Bursough, Nr Ormskirk. It's all old stuff, but really clear, and in good nick.

pitch pine is good! I like pitch pine. Someone may need to take my planes away though to stop me shaving bits off to smell!

cheers for that though, off to track em down right now!

I was reading and saw you use the term "Fit of Pique" I nearly fell off my chair. Someone who actually speaks English. Who knew? Hereabouts it's usually "peek" or "peak". Mustn't damage the little darling's psyches by correcting them in the third grade, must we? Thus we have teachers with PhD's who can't spell their own names correctly three times out of five. But they feel good about themselves.

Keep up the good work.

Aye he's a topper little speller the skipper! I saw the word "Germane" used in an e-mail recently (correctly) it made my day.
