Let me know.  I don't do it for a living but as a hobby and have a fully equipped workshop and can make most anything.  If you are not near Charlotte and need some wood working advice let me know.  I'd be happy to help.

Any good sources for mahogany boards?  I'm restoring an old fishing boat and need:
3 - 60"x13"x3/4"
6 - 48"x1-1/2"x3/4"

I'm thinking the seats could be made out of narrower boards if run through a jointer first and bookended together.

Woodcraft sells Mahogany (off Independence Blvd next to Sams Club).  You can also find it at Wurth Wood Group near the airport.

Charlotte, NC 28208-5863

Sapele is a good substitute for Mahogany if you want to save a buck or two.  Joint one face then plane to the thickness you want.  None of what you get will be 3/4" but more like 7/8"  (four quarter).
