Default Dock Coatings

You folks were very helpful in pointing me in the right direction for a dock coating (Cabots Deck Correct). Now I have another question. Are there any other methods to prep new pressure treated 2x6 deck boards for coating other than the time needed to dry out? Are there any disadvantages to using non treated wood for a dock deck? I've asked locally and googled, but can't really get any answers. In advance, thanks for your input.

Non PT won't last as long. I wouldn't even consider it. Go up the scale, not down.

Mines 18 years old and in good shape but the novelty of the clean and reseal wore off long ago.

I haven't heard of any other prep for a new dock other than let it cure and clean if necessary.
