SeaCoyote is on a distinguished road
I once owned a 70' wooden tugboat built in 1941. It was like having another child and thowing his/her ivy league college tuition in the water every quarter. I used to lay in bed at night thinking about mold spores attacking the wood.
She was an awesome boat, but owning a wooden boat is a full time job.
This was in Seattle and when it rained I really worried about fresh water in the bilge.
