It’s typically an add on process to add a glass sheath to a wooden boat. There was a book written on it by Alan Vaitses.
It’s a reasonable way to get more life out of a wooden hull
and reduce the effort involved in upkeep. And more life they got! 1963. Wow!! Cool
Forget the insurance. If you need it for a marina and for operating the boat you just need liability. Self insure the hull and be responsible with your boat.
With this boat, you’ll want to check the fresh water
coming from rain as the primary source of issues. And of course make sure to have someone who understands wooden boats involved in the buying
process and/or survey
