I don't have much personal experience, but did read a couple of books by

many years and seem very experienced.  Their recommendation for wooden
spreaders was to cover the top of the spreaders with a thin copper
flashing.  This would protect the wood from both UV damage and pooled

Aluminum is of course pretty maintenance free, but wood does add alot of
Fair winds and following seas...
