Alright I know this topic has been beat like Grads willy but what is the shindizzle for bunk wood? Doug fir? Thinking about using 3/8 square u bolts and routering in a notch so securing will never be an issue also it is stored indoors so less time in moisture. What say yee?

DF is fine if you can find a few pieces that aren't all crooked and knotted up, don't use any treated lumber especially the red kind, the red can soak through the bunk carpet and stain the bottom of your boat, good luck with your project

do you need tapered sections or flat ? If flat order some iron wood. Its a Brazilian rainforest hard wood that is impervious to rot. Just make sure to use a powered stapler to attach bunk carpet. This wood is HARD
