Time to replace front porch deck: fir vs mahogany T&G?

It is the same price at the local yard.  I am replacing a yellow pine floor of 15 years that did not hold paint well and has had a lot of rot problems.  Thoughts?

I am trying to figure out why I have replaced flooring 100 years old and it seems in fair shape.  The new boards put in are rotted in 5 - 10 years.  Have they changed the trees or are they just not making them like they used to.  If the pine didn't work out try something else. Replacing this stuff is just too much work every few years..  

I had the same issue when I was trying to renovate my old house in Auckland. At that time I found design and build SO Renovate company in my area and their specialists helped me to finish all work in the best possible way. I think in such cases is better to consult with the local professionals first.

The new floor is now on (went with the mahogany), treated with linseed oil and in the middle of coats of marine varnish.

The final outcome on this was excellent.
