Timber and treating

Hi gang, I am about to build some enclosed seating on the boat. Sort of like a centre cockpit on the aft deck. I have some timber that will be good to create the framing from, but it is treated. I have never seen anybody use treated timber and I seem to have in the back of my memory (very dark memory) that someone has told me it is because they glues don't like treated timber long term. Can anyone verify this?

treated timber

Wheels i have used marine ply and oregon,had it treated at twice the below ground rate for the last 20 odd years and had no problems with gluing it ,i saw a boat i rebuilt 20 years ago and and the treated ply cabin was as good as the day i built it.The epoxy glues we have today work great ,the one draw back that treated timber has is getting paint to stay stuck to it but a coat of everdure fixes that.

Thanks Mate. I sure wish the guy that built the Pilot house on mine had used treated ply. But that's another story.

Treating wooden mast

Hi there,
I am a newcomer to your forum... I have recently sanded my mast down to the bare wood and I would like to know what would be the best treatment to preserve it over the coming years.
