Subject: Deck and cockpit rebuild '71 Mariner 40

Hello, I am the new owner of Starbuck, she's been out of the water for a number of years in dry storage with punky decks. I am in need of some advice. The stringer or shelf that the deck supports rest on that is built into the hull is also rotten. It seems to be scarfing in new pieces is the most common method of repair. Are there any other suitable methods of repair for one, and second , if no other options are available what is the best lumber to use in the replacement for longevity and cost effectiveness. Also, A few of the deck beams also require replacement I am considering white oak or cypress. Are there better choices for these as well. Thanks for your advice!
