Lund flat board seats

3 posts in this topic

I need to replace the flat board seats on an old Lund boat. This boat sits uncovered on a lift in the summer and on it's trailer in a shed in the winter. I am told that the new treated plywood is a no no for aluminum boats. Is there some special kind of plywood and or finish that will provide durability?

Bill,

Treated lumber has changed again!

ACQ treated is out as the industry standard, the new product is treated with micronized copper.

This is copied from Universal Forrest Products web site:

Compatible with Aluminum

ProWood Micro can be placed in direct contact with aluminum building products

Micronized copper treatment was marketed in January of 2007 so there is still alot of ACQ in lumber yards and home centers. Make sure the piece of plywood is labled PTMC or has Micro somewhere on the little tag with the UPC# and it will be safe to use with aluminum.

The original seats were made out of marine grade plywood.

Expensive but the best way to go.

Paint with a spar varnish or good brand of exterior oil based paint on BOTH sides.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!
