What is the best wood for 2x4 boat bunks under the hull? I plan on putting a 3/4 x 1-1/2 pvc strip on top with countersunk screws as it is an aluminum hull.

For me the best one 's are what's on sale. It is something that has to be replaced every 10 years.

Plain old 2x4's, 2x6's.
Never pressure treated wood.

The ultimate bunk boards are great, but I just use standard, 2x4 or 2x6 BC grade lumber. They are a consumable like brake pads and tires.
