Many of us admire all the work and skill that went into boat making over the years. Having wood on my boat is a source of pride and I do work on it fairly regularly. If I had wood on my hull it would be much worse as I would have to do more than just re-paint my boat's plastic bottom every year. Fiberglassing a wood hull can last a fair amount of time but is not nearly as durable as a complete composite hull, IMHO.
I hope you have bags of money stashed away for your 'woodie'! Wooden boats are just out of my budget right now. The cheapest boat is an OPB, other person's boat.
