Wood or Glass?

thanks for the reply. I''m handy with wood and enjoy it''s beauty. I don''t think I''d mind keeping it maintained although it might get old, a ''chore'' over the long term.

The boat I''m looking at has 1.5" cedar planking bolted to 3" X 3" double sawn frames. Deck is 1.5" fir planking. Recent survey (2003) said it is extremely structurally sound and suitable for offshore cruising. It was being rebuilt (''95) when work was stopped and thus just lacks a fully ''functional'' interior. I wouldn''t undertake rebuilding the cabin myself however (no access to proper wood & tools). But other small projects/repairs I would feel fully capable of handling.
