Out of price range, but a good example. If I could afford it though... Pretty wood interior, lower maintenance hull.
Cold moulded is my personal favourite - best of glass and wood. It's not really a wood boat in the sense we are discussing here - it's properly termed a composite boat because the wood is merely the fiber - it's the combination of fiber and resin that makes the material.
