You probably won't find it at the usual stores (West, Boaters World, etc.). Try looking for a local shop for woodworking supplies. The one I use has all sorts of fine woods like teak, holly, mahogany, cherry, etc. They are pricey but not too bad. I replaced the main hatch slides, trim, and bent boards on my boat for about $200.

Good luck.

Perhaps you could buy smaller pieces and glue/epoxy them together. This can often be stronger than a solid piece.

Jamestown sells it up to 5 1/2" x 3/4" x 8'. You might ask if they can get you a 6" wide piece:

This guy has it. I don't know if he ships or not. If you wanted 12 inch wide teak, he has it. I have bought from him.

Woodcraft

Try Woodcraft on Independence, just before 485. I was there this weekend and they have some long pieces, 6 inches wide. Very pricey, $22 per board foot.
