Degrading porch boards

A house I have has (oak?) t&g deck boards on the front porch. Mover the last 60+ years it looks like they've been stained, painted, and beat down repeatedly. Given all the years of abuse only a few boards are actually rotted to the point of needing replacement. The rest of them just need stripping and refinishing. Does anyone know this style of porch board and where I can get something similar? I can post pictures later... They are 3/4x6" tongue and groove...

1x6 T&G pine boards are readily available from home stores and lumber yards. I question that the flooring you have is oak. It does not do that well outside. It could be ash, which looks a lot like oak.

Post some pics, easier to tell what it is.
