Got a quote per linear foot of 3/8" x 1 3/4" vertically sawn teak of $1.04/ft. Sounds pretty reasonable to me, but I've never bought teak. Can y'all tell me if that is a good quote?

That seems high to me.

Teak retails for about $12-15 per board foot.

Try one of these dealers for perhaps a more competitive quote on pre-milled VG teak decking:</font> East Teak Trading Group (http://www.eastteak.com), Sultan, WA and Donalds, SC.</font> Edensaw Woods, LTD (http://www.edensaw.com), Port Townsend, WA.</font> Flounder Bay Boat Lumber (http://www.flounderbay.com/), Anacortes, WA.</font>

Casey,

Is that price for teak delivered to your boat? Or close enough to haul it yourself? You're probably looking at $0.50 to $0.60 per pound freight from the folks at Flounder Bay Lumber. It probably depends on how much you need. What is the freight cost versus local sales tax?

If I'm doing the math right a piece of teak 3/8" x 1 3/4" x 12" is 0.055 board feet. So, at $1.04/linear foot that's $19/board foot. Given the waste and labor involved in cutting pieces that size I think that's quite a reasonable price. For example, if you assume that a tablesaw will be used for the cutting (faster but more waster relative to a bandsaw), then you could figure on losing about 1/8" of wood for each cut. That means each piece will use up a piece of wood 5/8" x 1 3/4" x 12" which is 0.091 board feet for a price of $11.41/board foot, and that does not even factor in the labor.

I don't think that price includes delivery. I only need 56sq ft of the decking, or 45 boards (allowing for an 1/8" caulk line). Each 8' board will be $8.32. So, my total of $375 for the cockpit sole is a reasonable price.

Agreed. Especially since it's already in Texas, eh?

Teak is $18bf here in P'cola so that sounds pretty good with the mill work done to your size.

Maritime Wood Products wants $3 lin foot for vert sawn teak. I'm thinking my original quote of $1.04 milled is as good as I'm going to get.
