I'm starting a project of rebuilding an old sailboat
that has wooden rails. While I could scarf shorter pieces,
I'd prefer to find long boards. The longest I need is just about
I'd prefer teak, but options include mahogany, oak, purpleheart, and
ash. (In varying order of preference).
I'm in the Phoenix area, but can travel.
You won a lottery? Hope so, you'll need $$ or a 2nd mortgage if you can
find an 18' teak plank. Which is what you should use.
The first place I'd look would be Maurice Condon in (IIRC) White Plains,
NY. I don't think they have a web site. They specialize in lumber for
marine applications. Lots of it. Closer to you, check out marine
lumber suppliers and boat yards in Long Beach and San Diego. Let your
fingers do the walking...
Personally, I'd scarf.

Arguably, yes. However, since this is for a Thistle
which laminates 4 pieces into a 3.5" wide rail and was historically
done with oak or mahogany, I can use any of the species listed. (actually,
I can legally use anything that's denser than the proper species of mahogany)
That's about what I was expecting.
Which isn't really a problem to do, I just wanted to have the
one piece look. Especially on the outwhale (the laminate
goes 3 pieces inside, 1 piece outside).
