Your honor, I wish to present my case here. We all love classic stuff. The history, style and romance of timeless art that moves you. And I love all three, four.. hell 20 of different vintage things. Coke machines, posters, anything.
But there is one thing that is special about a Classic Woody Boat that is different, and better. It’s made out of wood! Everything rots, Metal rusts, plastic gets weak, But try and replace a plastic hull? Or a rusted car. You have to find the parts, where as a classic Woody Boat can be remade in your garage. Like you went to the factory and did it yourself. Hell, you can rebuild an entire boat. no fiberglass molds, no hammering and stamping new metal.
If you want to restore a Fiberglass boat to a very safe standard, it will cost as much as a wood boat. And the parts, and bodies have to be found. It’s really that simple. Never mind that you in the end own one of the most beautiful forms of transportation on the planet.
And the best part, is you are also in one of the best communities in the world. Helpful, kind, and always ready to help. Now go spread the gospel.
