Default 28 Apache bulkheads and stringers

What are the stingers and bulkheads made out of in the Apache?

Pretty sure its just wood - douglas fur, and fiberglass.

The newer ones don't have any wood (post 1999).

When I was building for Bob at Apache they were all kiln dried douglas fir. When I started building them as Cherokee I eventually (1994) went to Mantex foam (80#) in the transom, engine rails (36#) and cleat locations. The rest of the core was NidaCore. No wood.
