Like most responses, I have had wood boats and loved them. Would I have one today, no. If you really like spending time working on your boat and take pride in preserving a wood boat, by all means, go ahead. If you are looking for a cheap boat to use without much work, don't do it. I like many of you have seen some beautifully maintained wood boats that are flat out gorgeous, well maintained and a true effort of love to keep them floating. BTW, most marinas in our area will not rent a berth to a woody. Too many sink in the berth and are abandoned. This is not a trivial issue when getting a wood boat no matter how well maintained.
