Yes, Sapele will work well for decks on a CLC boats and other like boats. At one point we even offered it as an option. But because of the much higher price and the additional weight, we discontinued it. However, there are still plenty of folks using Sapele. I would not suggest building your entire boat from it. Costs too darn much, there is the higher weigh, and it dosen't like to bend like the Okoume. Most of the time it is used for interiors of larger boats.
