That's medicine I need! ... but core rot? blisters? delamination? print through? separation? color fade? thigh blisters from the hot plastic?

Still you've hit the nail on the head. I think it's clear that fiber glass is wonderful material for boats. In fact it might not be too far from the truth to blame the recreational marine industry on fiberglass. I can't say exactly how much more difficult a wooden boat is to maintain. I do know that in San Francisco they beat the living tar out of folkboats - about half of which are wood. So I'm hoping the proposition isn't totally insane.
