After 20 years it was time for new ones , western white cedar just last so long, this what I spent some of my July vacation working on. the Hickory should last a lot longer with 5 coats of Helmsmen finish should do it and I reinforced the seats with 1” square steel to Carrie the heavy loads. The top two board are 17” wide 1 1/4 thick.
