Planks here and there, or some caulking are needed every couple years. This is a great boat for one who loves the look and feel of a Northwest work boat-----and should bring many more great years of service to the right owner. I am a boatbuilder of many years; have replaced 8--10 planks on her----refastened well over 1000 screws----and am happy to share my knowledge of her. Also; Pease Boatworks is capable to assist in the care and or upgrades desired.
