Teak bow shelf

In process of restoring a marine trader. Looking for a bow teak v shape mounted shelf which was part of original design. Not sure if I called it correct. Any suggestions on where I could find one would be appreciate

Maybe a couple of good shots of the area that you want to apply this to would help.

If I understand correctly what you want is a shelf to fit the hull shape above the V berths for extra storage of personal items.

Was there nothing present when you bought the boat? Copy it even if in bad shape so you can get the shape?

I strongly suspect you will have to either come up with your own or hire a marine carpenter to make one.

The curve could be a problem but that can be dealt with the use of tick sticks and carefull work. THe curve will not have to be exact but it can be close.

Are you sure you want to put those shelves back?
They are thin, weak and in the way when sleeping. Such a bargain!
There is a huge amount of storage under the berths and a real whopper up front.

Polish up your woodworking skills and have at it.
