Check this site out for properties of this wood. https://www.woodworkerssource.com/show_tree_wood.php?wood=Staudtia stipitata

Given what I read I only offer that this wood is going to be difficult to edge bend given its density and reference comparison to maple. You may have to resort to soaking in water or alcohol. I would try a sample piece before I go too far. Chuck Passaro also recommends heat to edge bend in the area of the curve.

Have a look at the pinned articles at the top of this sub-forum:  https://modelshipworld.com/forum/14-building-framing-planking-and-plating-a-ships-hull-and-deck/    You'll get several ways of bending wood as well as planking the ship.
