I built a platform for my old 76 and I got the teak off of fleabay. You can search for "teak lumber" on there and get lots of hits.

At this point, I am assuming they will make good of their mistake. I clearly asked for a board that has a minimum size of 7/8 " x 1-3/4". What I got was 7/8 in. square.

Anybody can make a mistake. It is how they handle their mistakes that shows what knd of a person/company they are.

I was hoping to repair the platform this weekend and put the boat into storage next weekend. I guess I will need pospone at least a week.

You beat me to it. Just be aware it is so dense that it does not float. Could be good if you were looking to add some weight to the back of the boat. I am unsure about it getting that much water constantly with regards to warping. I know that high end decks and outdoor furniture are made with ipe.

It looks like it was an honest mistake of getting the label mixed up on 2 packages. The correct one should be on its way.

Excellent.... I have always heard good things about Tommy and his business... Other local tier providers should follow his service model....

Teak World came thru and I had the right size board on Wednesday.

Anybody or company can make a mistake. When they admit to it and go out of their way to correct it, that say a lot about them. I highly recommend them to anybody that needs their products or services.

Today, I ripped, plained, routered, sanded, screwed, plugged and teaked oiled the replacement board. After a couple more coats of teak oil, I think it will look as good as new.
