    Call up your local lumber yard ? Get some mohog or some other hardwood.

    The dimentions might kill you when you want something so small and they have to cut lumber 2" wide.

    The length is not really an issue .. its the 2" wide that will.

    Hard to come by 2"x 14' ( I am assuming 14' and not 14" please correct me if I'm wrong ).

    Scrap yards have Plenty of teak swim platforms that they are parting out .. might check into that.

    YD.

      Go buy some redwood at HD and some sealer. Cut it and seal it and screw it, Use ss screws.

            If you get the finished grade plywood and sand it it will look nice. Have seen and made alot of custom cabinets with it. Plus alot of people wrap the wood with vinyl anyway.

              You should try a speciality woods shop or cabinet shop, they can make what ever you need since you don't have the tools to do it yourself.

              You may also be able to find something in the wood mouldings section of HD or Lowes. You don't have to match exactly what was on your boat, use your imagination.
              I consider overkill a job well done... plus a little extra.

              There's as many ways to do something as there is people to tell you how to do it... but not all of them are the right way.

              The drinking and debauchery will continue until morale improves... and maybe for a little while after.

                You can PM me. I do all exotics. Shipping to the left coast may be cost prohibitive. I import a ton of Mahogany if you like red. 14' no problem
