I agree with Keith. If you enjoy the routine of owning a wooden boat I can think of no better wooden boat to own. They were built to last.
As an aside I have a friend with a wooden Hinckley- Owens 41. Boat was re-planked with mahogany maybe 20 years ago. We can sand and paint that hull with less effort than waxing my plastic GB 36. Brightwork is brightwork regardless of what the hull was made of. Keeping any boat in nice shape requires lots of work and / or $$$
