I recently reconfigured our boat lift to handle our Bennington 2019 23 SX Premium SSBXP with the SPS package. I used flat 2x12x16 pressure treated wood (treated with micronized copper anole or MCA) with a lift system rated at 8K pounds. I have read a few posts on several sights over the last few days indicating that having the tubes in direct contact with the wood can over time cause damage to the aluminum tubes due to chemicals in the pressure treated wood. Everything I have read on specs of MCA treated wood state that due to its revised formulation that it was approved for direct contact with aluminum with no corrosion concerns. Was just curious if others had any actual experience with bunks using MCA treated lumber. Should I go ahead and install a vinyl or carpet covering to the top of each bunk Just to be safe?
