Rhodes 19 underdeck Cockpit issues

I have a 1966 Rhodes 19 with rotted wood that surrounds the cockpit under the deck. This wood is used to mount the 3 pieces of brightwork (port, starboard and aft) and seats in a channel of fiberglass.

After removing all 20-28 pieces, I was able to salvage some good ones and they are 5-6 inches long, 1 inch wide and cut on bias.

I could try to make these myself, but I was wondering if they could be sourced somewhere, what the best wood to use would be and what would be the best install method.

Final question: Do templates exist for the Rhodes 19 underdeck plywood brackets that mount on the hull and under the deck?

Thanks in advance for any help!
