Re: Wood vs Fiberglass Maintenance cost/time

Of course, if you asked this question over at The WoodenBoat Forum you might get a different answer. Modern wooden boat construction and material may also make maintenance easier. Even an older wooden boat that has been well maintained will be less work than a badly maintained boat - wood or fiberglass. Fiberglass boats probably tolerate neglect and abuse better.
