I have a 1972 14 foot Starcraft aluminum boat that has wood seats on top of aluminum frame containing foam flotation blocks. The existing wood seats are rotting and I would like to replace them with lumber that will be able to withstand rot from the elements. Any suggestions would be appreciated. By the way, the existing seats are 12 inch wide boards and just under 5 feet in length. living in the Myrtle Beach area, I have only found red oak boards that are 12 inches wide.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
