Wooden Boats

boat designer
Is wood more expensive to maintain and does it last?
Wooden boats should not be more expensive to maintain.  They only have this reputation because they last so long that people are looking at very old wooden boats and comparing the cost of maintaining them with the cost of maintaining shiny new plastic boats.  Not a fair comparison.
 If paint and varnish are kept up  then the boat will last indefinitely. Look at  how many boats have survived well over 100 years
