I dont think its cypress but I am hardly an expert. I used about 90 board feet of cypress recently and it didnt look like that. The grain on the face of the board in the pic is much bolder (for lack of a better word). It actually looks like some douglas fir plywood I used to make cabinets for the shop/garage. It was BC grade plywood from Home Depot and the grain looked excatly the same, even the color.
Thanks all, I think I'll agree it must be pine. The smell is what threw me. This area had lots of saw mills back in the day, 1800's, and this board and others like it look to be this old but not rotted out. Being under water must be part of the smell/longevity? Also it was in Blackwater Bay not River, my bad.
