Ken…

When you finish your mast painting you’ll need something to make you chuckle…your search for teak reminded me of this story…A sailor in San Rafael called a local lumber company and asked if they carried teak wood.

Oh si, senor, said the helpful clerk who answered the phone. We have lots of teak wood.

Great, said the San Rafael sailor, I’ll be right down. When the sailor arrived at the lumberyard he found mahogany, rosewood and apitong but no teak. Frustrated he went to the front desk.

Hi, he said, I called earlier and you said you had teak wood here but I can’t fine it.

Oh pardon, senor… we have lots of teak wood. What kind do you want and how teak do you want it… one inch or two inch teak.
