Need a small piece of Teak

Hello,

I have a small old wooden sailboat with plenty of beautiful teak on it. My tiller recently broke and I was forced to quickly whittle down a pine stake found in a nearby construction yard to save the day of sailing. I would like to get a piece of teak and replace the pine properly, but I''m having trouble finding just a small piece of it. I really don''t want to spend $50 on a plank that is 6 times more material than I''ll use. Perhaps someone here can offer some suggestions as to where to get a small piece of teak, about 1" x 2" x 36". Are there any shipbuilders in Los Angeles that I could ask for some remnants? Any other ideas of where to get the teak?

Thanks,
Dan
