Teak and Douglas Fir supplier - Texas

Does anyone know of a reasonably priced supplier of marine lumber? Trying to refit hurricane damaged boat.

I don't know any lumber yards that would say the lumber was priced unreasonably. Teak isn't reasonable. The longer and thicker you require the more it hurts. You should also have a conversation with the dealer as larger teak isn't dimensioned like normal lumber.

There was an exotic lumber dealer that I used in Houston many years ago. I believe the name was All Wood Schroder. You might check the Houston phone book. The only way to buy exotic lumbers cheap is in bulk from the source.
Good luck.

Locally, it's Kemah Hardware. Also known as "Kemah-Marcus hardware". And no, it's not reasonable.
