Where to get teak in SF bay area

I am up against practically rebuilding the interior of my boat due to wood rot. I will do it over a long time, one bulkhead at a time but I need to find a good (read cheap) supplier for marine plywood and teak cleat stocks and planks.

I live in the San Francisco bay area. Can anybody recommend a supplier?

Thanks.

Hmmm... then I wonder who answered their phone, "Handloggers, may I help you?" today.

I saw Tim at the Miami show in Febuary on his new catamaran and he told me that he shut down the business and sold the building. I am of course on the other side of the country so this is not local knowledge.

Handloggers seems like a good place. I hope they are not shut down. Will call them tomorrow. Heard about Macbeth before but I was trying to find a more marine oriented place. Afterall, lots of boats out here on the bay.

Thanks all for the information.

Southern Lumber (San Jose) does sell it, but it is VERY pricey....

Thats funny. I usually try to find stuff for my boat at less marine oriented places, as I'm tired of getting ripped off at "marine" prices, for no other reason than the item is "marine". Macbeth certainly has marine grade ply, and I think Teak is Teak. It's what you do with it that makes it marine. You might also look into IPE. Another hard wood that isn't quite as pricey as teak, with similar characteristics. I'd rather use Teak, but at over $30 a board foot (last time I checked)....
