Re: Wood Boats (maintenance & performance)

Stuart,

Both denise & Z both grew up around wooden boats - and know of what they speak.

I agree that the Bluenose is pretty drop dead gorgeous but I wouldn't buy it because of the wood hull either.
Trust me. There will be plenty to do on an old plastic classic too; more than you can imagine.
Unless your wife is a real trooper I'd go for the Typhoon or an Ensign.
