You could always get teak board stock that is 1" thick and rip the toe rails yourself. My friends recently replaced the rubrails, toerails, coamings and handrails on their Cape Dory, and made them up from board stock.

Making toerails of starboard is sacriligious...IMHO. UGH.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Agree that you can make your own from lumber. Bending it can be a challenge, though, and may call for some special techniques or a redesign.

The attached drawing shows, on the left, the original configuration of a teak toerail on our Viking 28 of years ago. We replaced the rails but had trouble bending the "flat" section. In the end we reversed the configuration, milled the pieces to create the rail shown on the right. The "toerail" was screwed and caulked into the hull deck joint recess and the "rubrail" part screwed and caulked to the first piece. This worked well and we were able to dry bend the pieces into place. All screws were recessed and plugged with teak plugs, it looked great (and actually still looks OK now, 20 years later) We added drainage cutouts every 4 feet or so to the raised toerail. The drawing is not really to scale and deck water could run cleanly over the rubrail at the cutouts.

The trick is to start at the center and work to the ends when attaching to a curved section.
