    Happy to help brother!

    We need more boxes in SC that folks WILL clean out and manage. It's the easiest thing we can do locally to put ducks back on SC's waters.

    Agreed. It was a furniture maker that got the bid. Don't remember where they were out of.

    The prison ones were a joke.

    Due to poor labor or poor leadership?

    Went back to making them out of cypress (tried pine for a few years.....just doesn't last) and the folks who got the contract to build them did a great job!

    The push to trying pine vs cypress I believe was due to material availability, cost of cypress and cypress growth rate. I believe pine tree grows faster if I'm not mistaken. I can't remember for certain tho.
