The folkboat are fairly capable boats. Many boats based on their design, like the Contessa 26, have circumnavigated. I would be a bit leery of buying a wooden boat, as they tend to have much more in the way of maintenance problems than do fiberglass ones. I don't believe that they'd be more stable than the same design in fiberglass.

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.
