Re: Seeking WARATAH yacht plans please
Yes, but that proper maintenance is often hard to find, especially in the tropics. If you go on any boats for sale site, like Yachtworld, Soundings, etc. you will see that wooden boats that are 40 years old or older are very rare, and the ones surviving are typically larger boats built by famous yards. And almost none of them are made of plywood, which is not as durable as mahogany, used in construction of high quality boats.
To my knowledge the ORION 3 was built with mahogany ply!
