Re: planning to buy: steel hull / wooden deck

Nice boat!

IMO, there's nothing wrong with composite construction - Clipper Ships pioneered that idea centuries ago - so long as the deck is fastened to the frames properly, there should be no issues to speak of unless someone screwed something into the deck without sealing it properly.

Just make sure you look for deck leaks (with tell-tale rust trails) overhead when you're doing the inspection down below.
