The web site I think Mike is talking about is http://www.geocities.com/fluidmotion2/home.html Great site! I'm also making new caprails later this year. I saved the old one's for patterns but have been debating how to make the curved pieces. The approach that Kevin used on Fluid Motion looks like a great solution.

When I pulled the old caprail off, actually they all but fell off once the screws were removed, I dug out the old caulking. I refilled the area with 5200 (not sure I'd do that again in hind sight) and then glassed over the top. I've got a few bumpy areas that I'll sand out and then add another couple of layers of fiberglass cloth before putting the new caprails on.

The cost of teak is depressing. A friend used to get teak at http://www.maritimewoodproducts.com/ They used to have priceing for teak lumber on line. Not anymore but it is one place that I'll check when the time comes. Two other places that I'll check are http://stangelohardwoods.com/ and http://www.worldpanel.com/ If anyone knows of any other sources for rough sawn teak lumber I'd be interested in finding out.
