With all of the other balls you are juggling, I would hope a wood boat would scare you. Wood is a great material--but it also requires constant high maintenance, or else you sink one night. And if someone didn't do the restoration exactly right, didn't use exactly the right fastenings...you may need to remove and replace thousands of them, while drydocked.
Wife, baby, med school, wood boat...No mortal could juggle all of those without seriously neglecting more than one of them.
