All Videos » Buying the Right Wooden Boat

It might be said, “you are what you sail.” So be careful what you end up with when buying a wooden boat. Study boats on the market, talk to knowledgeable friends about their favorite boats, assess your particular skill set before you buy, not afterwards when you’re out there lunging around on a boat that is too big and complex for you to handle. In other words beware of the maritime equivalent of The Peter Principle.
