got a question for you guys, any input would be great. i need to replace my decking in the trihull. its spongy and dry rotted. i was wondering if anyone had ever tried to use aluminum stringers (such as aluminum home studs) and if anyone had any info on this. i am thinking they will last longer, they are lighter, and stronger, and wont rot. i know i am missing something, cause it cant be that easy. if it were why wouldnt any one else be doing it. any help would be great.
