Glassing a old wood hull.
I'm still 4-6 months away from starting to seriously shop for my next boat, however I've been keeping an eye on available boats just in case and came across this one. 1935 Built Alden Ketch. Victoria City, Victoria
I'm just wondering about the pro's and con's of fiber-glassing a wood boat. Off the top of my head, it would seam that you are adding a lot of weight to the boat while making the hull stronger but perhaps slower.
What kind of things should someone be concerned about with that type of hull?
