We cannot turn back the clock (viz. restore weight to outdoor timber that has lost weight, reattach flakes that have detached, etc.) To maintain functionality, the best bet may be to paint or spray with fibreglass resin (as used to coat timber boats.)

Perhaps a naive question, but wouldn't soaking the timber restore weight? Perhaps harder to do with vertical members, but would daily spraying help?

No it will only hasten the decay, the surface needs to be cleaned and sealed in some way to keep out water.
