I wish the narrator would go a little more in depth about the structure and make up of the boat. Cool looking boat but a little tight for me.

Also, is there any kind of process for the bottom of a wood boat to minimize ongoing maintenance? I think I have read about some kind of overlay ...

Any kind of non-original "overlay" is death to a wooden boat.

In one of my exam rooms I have a photo that I enlarged and framed from an old photo of my Grandfathers 29' Yawl sailing up the Niagara river by the entrance to Lake Ontario. The photo was taken in the late '30s and my dad and his siblings are sitting on the boat.

Patients always ask me if we (our family) still have the boat. I always feel like laughing, a wooden sailboat that was old in the 1930s, getting hauled out of the water every year isn't going to last another 80 years without some major work or major financial commitment. Neither of which my grandfather was inclined to do.

I wonder if the little wooden Blue Jay sailboat I learned to sail with on the Connecticut River and LI Sound as a kid is still around somewhere. Sold it to get through college around 1982.

Let's just say...be on good terms with your shipwright. I have a good friend who is a shipwright who works on most of the wooden fishing boats here as well as a couple of wooden pleasure craft. He spends hours and hours every year on vessels that never leave the dock. There's always a bad plank that needs to be replaced. It's fun to watch him corking a hull. The tools he uses are over 100 years old.

Then in all likelihood your best shot is asking the guy who has it for sale. He knows what's done; what needs doin'. Course, he just might fish to see if you are genuinely interested 'cause he also knows, anyone doesn't know wood boats shouldn't buy one.


Not that calibre, anyway.

Rule of thumb in the wooden boat society is:
10% of the value of the boat annually.

Obviously there is some significant variation from that rule when there is something major that goes wrong.

The process is called c-flex? Maybe I spelled it wrong but that is what was done to my boat in the 70's. It cost about 80k back then. I don't know what it would cost now
