Why do you want a wooden boat...Have you decided to give up sailing and go into boat maintenance as a hobby???
Good point - and the main reason I didn't get the 6-metre at the time - but I push that nasty reality to the back of my mind as often as possible...
The Compass 28 & Alberg 30 are GRP but a "not-modern" (using the term extremely loosely) supposedly sea-kindly design - but I know nothing about them or their true ability... hence the post.
