Question: I’ve always considered buying a classic wooden boat, but will be moving to FL this year. How well will this type of boat hold up to salt water?

Re: Wooden Boats and Salt Water

Answer: Wood boats hold up well to salt, all of the early runabouts were used in salt. It is harder on the chrome and the salt water in the engine will shorten the cast iron life. We recommend putting fresh water cooling on older engines for better durability.
