Just a few blocks off the Ocean it may take 7-10 years to see the same level of corrosion.

A couple of miles in it will take even longer yet but youíll likely still see some surface rust after the first year.

As we both know what works in one place can be a Train Wreck somewhere else.

Id be curios on what BuiltByMac's views are on steel deck joist in his area. Even though heís about 80mi inland from my costal location his area is still almost as wet (minus the salt).
So we should insult and throw out technology and options that work for 99% of the country based on 1%? There is a VERY good chance that this is a viable solution for the op.

The solution would be to replace the joist or replace the deck. I don't think the op would replace the deck with the metal decking call me cynical but it's like putting a ferrari engine in a Honda you really only see those in highly $$$ homes.
If the op wanted to use a metal then should go with a TI Proboard then put tile on it right Infront of a ocean.

I just put a steel frame deck on a $165,000 house, not exactly a high dollar home, I also put them on $500,000 homes. I find that I usually install steel frame decks for intelligent people who see advancing technology can be good. They see the VALUE of the frame is worth cost.
