Default Dock decking replacement

I am looking for input on what people have had good results with what product they have used in replacing their dock deck.

I think the choices are somewhat dependent on whether it is permanent or removed each season.

Aluminum for structural design/support strength and long life together with the DECK made with real natural LUMBER milled from a TREE such as mahogany, locust, cedar, cypress, or the #1 most used deck material, pressure treated PINE.

Lumber can always get sanded, stained or painted and will look totally excellent for years and years.

Have you walked the .3-mile X 6'-wide long dock on the Laverack Nature Trail out behind the Meredith Village Savings Bank ..... www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2EqbiTpUXE ..... made with LOCUST lumber from South Carolina ..... and is totally not stained or painted ...... and two years, new!

My preference is to use pressure treated would for the decks, regardless of it being a season or permanent dock, I also recommend make the deck in removable sections....

Sections can be removed and brought on shore for cleaning etc.

At the end of the day, I have had very good luck, with pressure treated decking on my dock, every few years you hit it with a pressure washer and it cleans right up nice....

PT is heavy for a removable dock.

It would work on a permanent.

Just replace my first PT 5/4 board for rot on my crib dock after 20+ years. Pressure washed a couple of times over that span. That said, Id go with PT durability & cost.

Modern ACQ will not last as long as the older PT.
It really would be about proper prep and care to lengthen its lifespan.
