I'm thinking about buying a boat with a wooden hull. Is this a terrible idea?
It’s a classic 1940’s trawler, and it is in great condition. I’d use it as a live-aboard, but am concerned about the cost of upkeep. How often would it need to be hauled, and what is the cost involved? I’d have it in the Monterey Bay.
