Holy cow

Those are both fabulous boats. IMHO the character that wood adds to a boat enhances the pleasure of it's use.

Wooden ships and Iron men... those were the days! There's nothing quite as satisfying as living aboard a wooden boat and puttering about. Good for the soul and the heart. If you want to see the world and tend to life enhancing chores along the way, that ain't bad either... Capt Phil

Seems the bloke before you has done all the work, which is reflected in the price of course. If it has been done right, maintenance will not be onerous. But you've been left with one significant task, and that is to buld an oregon mast to replace that silly alloy stick. That was probably last on the PO's list but, worn out most likely, he took that final shortcut to the exit sign. The perfect time time to buy.

Boatman, Yes, I shared a few greenies and rollies with Roy. I waved him off, (we were anchored next to each other for 3 weeks), then left for the boatyard myself. I dint know he came back. Hope his skinny old self iz okay!
The coffee tastes better on a wood boat.

No doubt. The music sounds sweeter on a wood boat too. No wave slap or banging in chop. Just smooth, silky quiet sailing.

Well I found a recycling timber yard with a good stock of Oregon. Guess what? the guy owns a wood boat. Back down mine for some last measurements and it is time to get to work,

While on the topic how homely is the interior of this wood boat? Everything might move a bit at sea, but just imagine life on a misty lake? http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listing/photo_gallery.jsp?slim=broker&lang=en&ywo=woodensh ips&hosturl=woodenships&units=Feet&id=2193893&back =/core/listing/pl_boat_detail.jsp&boat_id=2193893


Then the next is just a nice modern take on a traditional boat ready for cruising, http://www.rossiteryachts.co.uk/

I would be happy to take custody and care of one of these beauties!
