    ...my deck and cabin exterior and interior. I am looking for information on where to get replacement wood or new wood to either match my original wood or altogether change it out. Large, thin pieces are needed and hard to find here in Montana. Any suggestions? Also what is the best company for ordering rigging and the like? That is also hard to come by in Montana. For small boats yeah but not for cruisers.

    It's been a while, but these folks took care of me in the past.

    If it's an unmodified rig, pretty much any decent rigging shop should be able to replace factory rigging. I use Sailing Services out of Miami, but a check of the Detroit, Portland, or Seattle phone books should turn up plenty of other options.
