I have a 1989 trawler the teak decking is done, the the majority of screws have been removed and epoxied.

I have been looking for sub for teak, IPE, Garpa, mahogany.

Out of those three choices which would be be the best choice, and does it have to be 1/4 sawn if so where does one get quantity of 1/4 sawn??

Teak decks

Leaving it "natural",... I would not use mahogany. I don't know enough about the other two to comment. (My thoughts are if you want a "teak" deck you need teak.
If you don't want to go with the cost of teak I'd go with plywood & glass cloth or Dynel set in epoxy and painted.

Very recently I completed a painfully tedious restoration/rebuild of my foredeck and cockpit sole that involved all new framing and the careful saving and relaying of the 60 year old teak planking.

If the problem is oversanding you can save the original planking you could rebuild as a composite deck (ply, glass cloth w/epoxy, the original teak planking set in TDS fitting epoxy. A tedious job but it can be done. That's how I had to do my foredeck.
