Default replacing bender on a Colorado yurt

We have a 24 ft Colorado yurt with two doors. About 1/4 of our bender board which holds lattice on the bottom in place has rotted out because of

moisture

. It needs to be replaced. Anybody done this or know how to do it? Do we need to take down the canvas sides or can we just lift them. Also I am wondering if instead of making another wooden bender if we can replace the wooden bender board with something that won't rot like plastic or aluminum so we don't run into this problem again. Appreciate any input.

Agreed, one piece at a time. Did you paint your board last time?

Plywood or OSB, or whatever, replace in sections. I'd prepaint it for certain.

This is very easy. Get the new benderboard that Colorado Yurt offers. It is a composite, nice high quality. Then remove the wall connections only at the door slats and the bottom grommets. That will give you plenty of room to work. Then replace the boards in quarters around the bottom, use stainless steel screws. Voila! Have fun.
