What kind of wood do you guys use putting a floor in a Jon boat? What do you do to it to keep from rotting.

Offline has all the info you want and then some. It's a forum board like this one.

I used marine... I've always heard do not use treated lumber where it will come in contact with aluminum... Something about a chemical reaction between the two. I've never tried it but I've seen the pics of what they say happens... Not good.

1/8" aluminum if you can spend the coin..
Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

I just bought some from Interstate plywood in Memphis for $80.sheet. But I used 1/2 treated covered in outdoor carpet on a jonboat that lasted 20 years withhout rotting. FYI
