It's not lost on the left coast either!

The good: check out the Adventress, built 1912. My (limited) time at the helm of that ship told me I was born century too late! Serious $$ have been spent on its preservation, and IMHO it was worth it.

The bad: check out the Western Flyer, Stienbeck's baja cruiser. When I walked that boat, all I saw was a pile timbers that should be book ends. 7 figure project seeking funding.

I think what you are looking at is somewhere in-between, not 7 figures, but it will be a massive labor of love, just be sure that is what you want to do with your life energy and resources. Some people wanna climb Everest, some people wanna resurrect old boats. Nothing wrong with either.

Get the best wood boat guy you know and trust to go over it with you before you pull the trigger.
