Be sure to stipulate that you want real Teak, as some places sell semi hard woods like Aframosia (spelling?) or Maranti as a substitute.
How small of a peice of teak are you looking for?
I have some small peices of different hardwoods left from the two van loads that I bought a few yrs ago and resold/gave away/used etc.
After a disasterous panel cutting exercise I thought I would go for foam backed lining as an easier option and so it has been. I have a few meters of trim to add at various interfaces and this will consist of flat mouldings and "L" mouldings as necessary. There are also a few areas where unused 2 gang 240V plugs have been removed and need blanked off. Basically a lot of small stuffs with the odd 2m run, a couple of backing pads for deck fittings, stuff like that.
So, why was the panel cutting disastrous? I had 5 panels to cut: port and starboard aft saloon windows, port and starboard aft cabin windows, aft cabin stern bulkhead. I bought two sheets of lovely 8'x4'x6mm marine ply and carefully laid out the old panels to best fit the two sheets of ply. Well, it would have been smarter if I had realised that I picked the same panel up twice to mark the template for the port and starboard windows. Now, the yacht is very symmetrical and the panels will be trimmed off at the joints so in principle a port panel cut twice should be OK on the starboard side as well. However, the sheet of ply, that lovely finish, is only on one side, so its not OK! What a dumb butt thing to do and all because I was in a rush. What is it they say, measure twice cut once - oh I did that, but against the wrong panel, twice in fact.
A mega fail.
Anyway, its done now and mustn't grumble. The foam backed lining looks great, brightens up and enlarges the aft cabin very well, so I am a happy chappy again.
Thanks all for the place to buy wood, hopefully their mind reading skills will be better than my template marking skills.
