I was a shipwright and learned from men that spent their whole lives building and repairing wood ships and boats.
And I live on an 83' wood boat, but the time for large wood boats is mostly over. The two biggest problems are getting proper timber and getting insurance. Most insurance companies see laminated wood as just another kind of wood boat.


You might look at Glen-L. They sell plans for boats and offer kits for some.
