I've seemed to notice that wooden boat owners spend more time maintaining their boats than I would be happy with. I prefer the less rigorous maintenance demands of a "frozen snot" boat.
I'm not saying that a properly equipped boat, even as large as 42' isn't able to be single handed...but there is much to be said for the simplicity and lower costs of a smaller boat. They can generally go more places, as they'll have shallower drafts as a general rule, and are easier to handle, especially short-handed.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
