Let me first say, awesome work. The project looks like it was intensive, but well worth it. There is something about having a teak/mahogany toe rail on the Commander that gives it that extra "wow" factor. So that being said, I've just purchased a '66 31' Commander that unfortunately does not have a wood toe rail, and I'm curious on any advice you could offer to putting one on.
I've just been in touch with an individual who has a surplus of teak/mahogany trip that her late husband use to use for trim work ("...teak is all "trim" so its very think, many 12+ foot lengths, but most are about 2" by 1/4 or 1/2. The mahogany is more variable, shorter lengths but some 1" or thicker, some as long as 8 foot but some shorter...") and I wonder if I would be able to use any of this to put on a toe rail. I have a carpenter friend who is skilled in shaping so I figure this could be done.
