Had a wooden boat in the past, a 44’ Bermuda Yawl. (Looks just like a Concordia, just slightly bigger)
Double planked mahogany over oak frames and teak decks. Lived aboard her in the Virgin Islands back in the 1980s. Great boat but wrong location, wooden boat in the tropics is a disaster. In my late 20s and had no idea, just did it without doing research or listening to advice. Never sailed before and never owned a boat before. Maintenance nightmare, but young and strong so I did it all myself. Nuts, never a wooden boat again, but she was beautiful to look at and sailed like dream.
Nuff said.

I stopped counting after 10. Too cold here now to remove my socks.

I think I have been misdirected with so many race boats. My next boat (last photo) will have three across seating.

The CSY 33 is s great boat, loved it but was working too much and did not get to use her much, decided to sell it in 2013, went to the dark side and got a powerboat.

When I posted this photo in another topic about old-school boats, I received "invitations" to leave the forum by a few members. So, there are folks here who do hate them and the sailors who own them.
This photo is from about 10 years ago when I was playing around with some special B/W camera film, hence the strange renditions. I inherited the boat from my father who asked me to keep her afloat after he was gone. I am doing so at great inconvenience and the boat is not much to look at today due to having lost the mast and rigging from Irma. So I will not post a current photo, too sad. Boat is shown in this photo as hauled at low tide for maintenance. It's the only one showing the hull fully. My father had a saying that the only thing keeping it afloat was all the teredo (ship) worms holding hands together.

Sponge hook-boats were used mostly in the Florida Keys and west coast for harvesting sponges in shallow water using a long pole with a claw on the end. Nobody got very wet that way. When the Greek immigrants came to Tarpon Springs and brought deep sea diving equipment, it pretty much ended the hook-boat fleet.

Some very nice boats on this thread so far.

Here’s our simple 18ft ply/glass flat bottom my sons and I built a few years back for diving and reef fishing. Not the best ride when heading into a chop but it works and she’s very stable.

Sorry for the sideways pic but technology challenged and don’t know how to rotate it.

Some very fine vessels on this thread. GaryDoug thanks for the picture of the sponge hook-boat. That is a neat story behind it also. Good luck with your upkeep on her.
