I don't have even a single bad board in mine.

My 40x40 pressure treated pine deck is on it's 10th year with nothing. Just did a lot of work to it after Sandy, not a bad board in it either, most of the galv nails were shot and I had to refasten, but the wood is 100%, been under saltwater numerous times. This is it after I finished it last week. I was tempted to flip the boards but energy level wasn't there!
