teak rub rail

The more I think about it, the more I want a teak rubrail with a steel strake atop it.

I'm hoping for piling protection, a footing for tots and my short-legged wife to use when climbing aboard (they weigh very little) and moreover I feel it complements the lines nicely (Pearson 424). Some of my sisters appear to have this stock and others do not.

Any suggestions for a willing and able shipwright, FL or NY areas, or alternatively, a description of how easy and inexpensive it was for you to fabricate.

I am especilly keen to know if it is best through-bolted, more than just to make the bend, or attached primarily with 5200. If a good portion gets ripped off, if it is through-bolted, there will be substantial hull damage. If that prospect is likely (or unlikely) because of the way it is made, I would greatly value the wisdom of the ages.

Any reliable source of teak (not necessarily Burmese) would also help. Thanks
