Hi, guys
I need help in choosing the right kind of wood for 1/6th scale boat, 2ft 2in long x 9in wide.
Not sure if Ace hardware still carries basswood for hobby projects, I am going to need to steam and bend the wood to shape.
If I can't find basswood, what other wood could I use that I could also steam and bend into shape.
Thanks.

Thanks Gandhisahil131
The M-1 Attack boat, does not have all those things, stringer,frame,decking ect,
I decided to go with 1/4 thick, 2ft x 4ft birch plywood, which is pretty bendy to make my hull out of without steaming it or soaking in hot water.
Right now, I have to figure out and build some type of frame to hold it in while I glue it up, after that figure out where to place all my electronic RC stuff in the boat.
