ok, my 1975 SRV 240 has a few "rotting wood" problems. I have gotten all of the rotted wood removed (Very carefully) and laid out in my garage so I can trace the pieces onto some new wood and replace them......I done GOOOOOOOOD on this aspect of the project, now I can't find any "Marine grade" lumber locally. What can I use, pine, oak, cedar, etc to make my repairs. I was told by an older guy at Home Depot I could use pine, but I need to use Thompson's deck sealer before and after I install the parts. Mainly, I need about 6 feet of 2x2 a 24x12 piece of 1/2" plywood to make all of my repairs... Would I be better off using some aluminum angle instead of the 2x2's?:smt100 Suggestions???????
