Aloha and welcome aboard!
I've owned both wood and fiberglass hulls. I would love to own another woodboat if I were going to liveaboard in cold water areas. Can't beat the beauty and the sheer pleasure of hearing the timbers working at sea but you need to be attentive and therefore is a good choice for living aboard but not in the tropics. Fiberglass needs much less maintenance and is easy to work.
