So I could argue very strongly on the pro side for FG. I'm a carpenter and I know what I'm getting myself into with regards to preventative maintenance and alike. As much as I would whinge and bitch about having to do things on the woody, I secretly love it as I love doing the up keep on timber. Is it more expensive. Yes. Is it more time consuming? Yes. Is it worth it? Only you can answer that for yourself. For me it's very much worth it.

For ease of maintenance for the weekend boating person then FG would be for you.
Understood / Agreed!!
