Possible supply of teak

If I were to obtain a large amount of Burmese and Thia teak would there be a demand for it?

I have an old army buddy that is a citizen of Thialand. Knowing that I am a boat person he said that he knows of a LARGE supply of old teak in all kinds of dimensions. It is still legal to export old lumber, and that is what this is. If the shipping is something we can afford then I will have it shipped to my home in Texas where I can cut it to any dimension. This is all preliminary at this point as I do not have all the details as per import-export fees, shipping etc. All I do know for a fact is that the material is there. I'm just wondering if there is a viable market.

Yes, you'd probably have a pretty viable market.

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.

Thailand has huge costs to ship export. In addition, all wood entering the US must be fumigated, which is expensive. I hate to rain on your parade, but Thai Teak has been exporting teak wood and finished products for a while, and the $ involved are breathtaking. Thai Teak Marine Yacht Fittings and Woodwork

Best Regards, and
if the price is right I'll buy it!
