Hi , you are totally correct , on the feel and good looks of a wooden boat , I am refurbishing one now , I've been told that it would cost a couple of million to rebuild one like mine ! Skills and yards are in short supply , and I think the bottom line is the cost , compared to the modern build materials and methods ,
