I love wood boats- and know that owning one means having the fiscal resources to maintain the vessel. That is the reason I would not own one.

I would take the total loss settlement and move on. As mentioned earlier, fewer and fewer yards want to deal with wood boats, and the insurance markets offering coverage are certainly dwindling. Those still insuring wood boats are demanding and getting significantly higher premiums for decreasing coverage.
