I have a 79 Marine Trader that I have to replace some decking on and have found some of the beams have some rot. Anyone have recommendations on types of wood and sources in the southeast. I was thinking oak or maybe cypris but not sure where to get it. Thanks Al.
*Depending on how much rot you are talking about, my first inclination would be to rebuild what you have with epoxy. * The windows in our home are Marvins and we bought them right at the time that they were switching from preservative that works to an eco-friendly type that doesn't work at all. *The result is that I have had to rebuild about a dozen of these that experienced rot. *Digging it out, saturating with epoxy thinned with MEK and then reforming with epoxy and wood filler produces a result that is hard to tell from the original and is certainly stronger. *Have you considered this? *Might be a whole lot less work and expense.
