Sadly in a salt water environment, aluminium doesn't really last a lot better than PCS. We had a roof on a house out on the farm (100 yards from sea) which rotted through at about the 20 year mark and have seen others the same. They tend to go around the fixing holes, looks OK and suddenly you realise it is paper thin and you can poke your finger through it!

Aluminum would be paper thin to start with...

Luck finding a suitable and affordable option.
