There are many wood boats significantly older than 1917 still in service around the world. The key to longevity, as with any boat but probably more so in wood ones, is constant maintenance and repairs. Read $$$$.

Can the wood really last that long? Some of it can and will, but a lot of it gets replaced over the years.
