Teak Lumber Source on the West Coast?

I need to replace the toe rails on my Pacific Dolphin 24. The toe rails are 1.25" by 1" by 24 feet. I expect to scarf together several pieces, but would like to keep the scarf joints down to one or two, meaning I need 12.5' or 8.5' lengths of lumber.

I am located near San Francisco, the two firms in the area that carried long lengths of teak (B Axelrod and Handloggers) are no longer in the lumber business. Does anyone know of a teak source on the West Coast? Or does anyone have experience with (and a source for) ipe?

Thanks

Dave

The only one I know is in So. Cal:

H&L Marine Woodworks
2965 E. Harcourt
Rancho Dominguez, CA 90221
(310) 638-8746

It's a mom-and-pop kind of operation, with some really nice people. I've had them do a couple of projects for me, and they did great work. I recently heard they are finally taking credit cards.

I'm pretty sure you can get teak at McBeath Hardwood in Berkeley, PAL lumber in Oakland or Hand Loggers in Richmond.

Thanks - Handloggers only sells decking now, no lumber. I did find a source on Craigslist.
