- The problem does not seem to be while the boat is in use. It get plenty of attention then. I think it's the off season that allows neglect and rot to eat away at the boat.

if only there was a way to build a wooden boat that could be used outside.
I wonder what they did before the days of plastic boats? They must have had a way to be able to use the boats outside without them falling apart due to the elements.
