      Nels when I grew up the the NE USA (New Hampshire and Maine)  we had many wooden fishing boats which looked wooden and were wonderfully made.  here is a pic of one such wooden trawler.. this size suited to a family fishing business

      I love the look of this boat and real wooden boats in general.  NOW that we can seal wood with resin one can have the original wood look without totally glassing it over.

      Funny thing - the latest edition of WB mag has a big article on how to
      use "Western" saws!

      Also in reviewing the magazine I was amazed at the work and effort that
      is done to make a wooden boat appear exactly like one made of
      fibreglass. I want my boat to look like is was made of wood:-)
      Probably explains though why a Michalak design is hardly ever shown.
      Five years seems to be the average time for a lot of them.

      Just sayin'
