Being from South Florida and just sold my 1957 Willys Pick Up truck which had a oak bed with metal strips like you are thinking about. Oak is the only way to go and go with marine spar varnish. It has good UV protection and you do not need to strip it every few years, just lightly sand and apply another coat. You will need about 4 coats to start with to make it shine like you want.
