Johnno, you raise an interesting point in favor of wooden boats that I had not seen before. But aren't wood boats more fragile and thus more likely to break up in rough seas?

I would think a broken up boat would not be safe even if individual planks floated.

No offense intended to you and your views, it just seems curious.
