As far as the difficulty of restoring wooden boats is concerned. The actual bits of work done aren't all that hard. The hard part is peeling the onion to get at whatever needs replacing. Wooden boats are many thousands of little jobs done well. All of those little jobs relate or tie into one another. Oh Joy had a rotten clamp (main framing that the deck beams tie to as well as rib tops) that needed fixed. To get at it, the deck had to come off. The deck beams and house had to come off. The chainplate partner on that side as well as a bulkhead had to come out. All of this to replace an 8' section of bad wood. This is the main issue with a wood boat. While everything on it can be replaced, getting at it is another story all together...
