Here are the cut out boat blanks. You can see on the one on the left the pith running the lenght of the boat. This will likely crack and render this piece unusable. Rarely do I get four usable boats out of a balnk. Sometimes it is the pith or knots or a crack that was already in the wood when I started turning the piece. As long as I get one I'm happy, anything else is a bonus.
