When my father was young (not sure of age), he built a 12' Sailfish out of a kit, all wood. Similar to the ubiquitous Sunfish, but with no cockpit. Flat across the deck with handrails on either side.
When I was 13, I inherited it...Dad had taught me to sail, but that Sailfish still almost killed me the first time I soloed. Accidental jibe, boom knocked me off the boat and the boat promptly capsized on me.
I was ok. Good thing my shorts were already wet. (jk)
It's not whether you're paranoid...it's whether you're paranoid enough.
