Having had a very nice Grand Banks that I did "everything" too, having become an expert on deck repairs, varnishing (I like Le Tonkinoise!), rebedding windows, wiring, plumbing, Lehman care and repairs and extensive cruising with a single engine, the fact that I don't need any canvas, boathouse, winter cover, window covers and the only piece of wood outside the boat is propping open a hatch, I think I am going to like aluminum once I can get past it looking like a giant transom zinc!
