I've come across your postings a couple of times now associated with the Anastasia 32 you mentioned. I'm very interested to hear more about it. I've found one that I'm interested in purchasing and I'd love to hear from you about how seaworthy she was and whether you think she would stand up to a circumnavigation.

Try cumaru, its used for house decks, its a Brazilian hardwood that weathers very well and looks similar to teak. Its available in Toronto, so you may be able to find in Montreal.

I assume you have steel coamings? I had a steel boat and I made the protruding steel coaming sandwiched between two pieces of teak 1/12 inches wide and 3/4 thick. Then capped these with a similar 3rd piece, routed and Cetol. Looked really good, but...

Be very careful how you attach the wood to the steel. Any holes you drill on the steel needs to be much larger than the screw passing thru to secure the wood. After drilling them you need a couple of coats of epoxy, then paint the entire steel plate that is going to be under the wood with epoxy as well. Then you can install the wood.
If you skip these steps, you'll have rust bleeding underneath the wood in no time, and you cannot fix it unless you rip the toe rail apart. Ask me how I know....
