It dosent stink. The wood isn't stained or totem or even soft. It still smells like pine and dosent seem to have many knots in it. The end grain is pretty looking too.

I am hard pressed to understand how pine that has been used as a dock could last 100 years. I cannot even think of a treatment that would allow for that.

The one exception is if it was all solid heartwood. And if it was that you could not cut it with anything less then a metal saw.

There is no rot at all. It's all solid, hard and heavy. Some pieces are coated in zebra muscles.
The dock was in Lake Erie. I couldn't tell you if that's low oxygen or not.

Could it be red wood? A few friends thought it would be. I'll try and get better pictures.
