I picked up a hondo Pantera set up for jet. Transom wood is bad. Stringers have fiberglass separation if still good I think I can reglass them . Good chance I'll have to replace. What wood should I use?

Dry kiln doug fir is what we used, make sure you ruff it up good with 24 or 36 before glassing, don't make it smooth and pretty, the glass will hide all the scratch marls and give you the mechanical bond you need. These stringers were hot with 24 grit prior to glassing in.

typically you need more of a Speciality yard, not sure if you have a Ganahl lumber up there but they can order, we have or had a great shop called Lindsey lumber and they had a kiln room where you could pick your wood out.

I picked up my kiln dried lumber from Ganahl Lumber in Pasadena, CA. They had it in stock and in the sizes I needed. It's a little bit of a drive, but I'd give them a call.
