I intended to be vague, although maybe I was too much so. I am interested in why people own, or don't own, wooden boats. I am thinking of carvel, lapstrake, and strip-planked construction in 26-40ft sailboats. Do people think, "that's beautiful, but too much work for me.", or "I would own one if I had the money", or "why would anyone buy a wooden boat when fiberglass is a much better material."

Thanks for the response,
