    second that, and I see the wooden boat phase lasting maybe a year and another toy that will cost you a few $$k as you sell it to pursue the next endeavour..

    IMO this is what you should do^^^^. Your budget seems to be tight and a woody gonna cost ya some coin. Save up this winter and dress your current baby up for the 2013 season. Make her the hottest chick in da club!

    Save your coin,the old woodies are great hobbies but not too practical. Kinda like a 57 Chevy rebuild, not many ever hit the end of the driveway from the garage..

    The other thing is that they are not much fun. They are more like art: great to look at but don't touch. Yes, you can take a ride but watersports are out of the question-- too messy. So, you can go for a cruise on a perfect day and then spend 4-5 hrs. cleaning her up. Save it for retirement.

    Or you could go "hybrid" - modern composite hull & mechanicals, with a wooden deck, accents, etc. I saw a factory job (can't remember mfg) on Canyon Lake years ago & there was a guy over on the Supra forums that Woodied out his Comp. Would give you a reliable platform & still have the opportunity to learn about constant wood maintenance.
