I'm working on the Sasquatch 14 and am trying to decide on the wood for the gunnel and decks. I'm trying to keep the weight down but I feel that really need a gunnel that will hold up over time. I have a good price on maple but it is heavy. I am also considering cedar, poplar or aspen because they are light weight but I'm concerned that they are not hard enough to hold up over time. What kind of thoughts are out there on wood types for gunnels?

no to poplar. You'll likely snap it trying to get it to bend.

Ash has always been my choice.
