There was quite a bit of discussion about the recent sinking of the ship Bounty during hurricane Sandy. If you search these forums for "Bounty" you will likely find several rather long threads on the subject.
That said, this is not an exclusively wooden boat forum, in fact, many here own the 'plastic' versions rather than woodies, although there are a few.
If you really want to talk to folks about wooden boat construction I'd say the place to go is the Wooden Boat Forum.
