Try Boulter Plywood in Somerville Mass. They have a room full of all kinds of teak and I believe will ship.

Since you are in the Pacific NW, you might try PJ White Hardwoods in Vancouver (BC) they sell Burmese Teak in various lengths and thickesses. Prices are in Canadian of course, and are between $16 and $20 (Cdn) per board foot. Might be worth the drive. Send me an email directly if you are interested in instructions on specifically dealing with them.

Around the Southern California area I found a place called Ganahl Lumber (several stores) that had some erally nice stuff at about $12.50/bd.ft. I even shipped some to Hawaii, where my boat is, only to find a place in Honolulu that has it for $13.00 - even 8/4!

In the winter, when Lake Michigan gets cold and firm, I do a little woodworking. I am able to buy teak at both stores I go to for other hardwood lumber. Many mail order hardwood suppliers also carry it. Price varies, but I have seen it at $17.50 a board foot, and even $20. Mighty precious stuff.

A couple of years ago I needed to replace some teak on my 1978 C30. I contacted Catalina through the "contact us" section of their website and they put me onto the outfit that produces their trim. I was able to get an exact duplicate. Why not give it a try.

Or consider PlasTeak, a real plastic teak made from recycled milk cartons. Main advantage is maintenance free. Main disadvantage is color, they may not have want you want. I had them cut me 3/4" x 8'' strips for trim on the cabin sides. I chose a lighter color. Now I need to replace the varnished teak handrails which are much darker than the trim strips.

i recently purchased teak for a project and for a rough cut 5/4 x 6 it was $14.60 a foot really nice wood. at this price you have to measure twice and cut once.

Dave, dont know where you are ,but here in Wilm,NC we have a great place called Anchor Hardwoods. They sell every kind of exoctic wood, plus they will cut it or plane it however you want. I would imagine you would have a similiar type of place that sold hardwoods. If not let me know and I will get the number for you.-thomas

Check out a wood called has the qualities of is beautiful like teak...but not on the endangered list so the cost is much less. I have companionway boards made from this and have been very pleased with them for several years.
