And on my opinion a wooden sailboat both feels more solid. The heavier wood lets the sailboat feel more solid in the water and thus a little bit safer. A sailboat is much easier to modify than a fiberglass boat. Just in case you need adjustments to your wooden sailboat you need only lumber treated for boat use and little know-how. While with fiberglass you are looking at either an impossible job or one that will require a lot of time and money if you are going to compare it with the wooden sailboat. And if you choose this kind of sailboat make sure you have a complete inspection done of the entire boat about and below. Always keep in mind that wood will require a lot of maintenance and must frequently painted or treated to keep intact.
Through more recent technology the number of hulls that a sailboat has is also an important consideration when determining what distinguishes one ship from another. Multiple hull sailboats are also more commonly referred to as catamarans. These sailboats offer greater stability than its monhull (as they are now being referred to) counterparts due to the wide spread between the hulls. This creates strong leverage which allows them to cruise as greater speeds than the monohulls. Many modern catamarans have surprisingly spacious areas below deck for any number of purposes including storage sleeping quarters and basic shelter. There are also three-hulled sailboats known as trimarans and these are becoming very popular in recent years.

If you choose to build your own sailboat you must first decide on the size you want. There are several practical considerations that you must keep in mind. These include the stretch of water where you will sail your boat how you plan to transport it and if you are not so strong how you will launch and recover it. There are several ways to go about building your own RC Sailboat. The simplest is to buy a kit at a hobby store build it up and finish it off with a different colour scheme or other detail. This is a good way to start because you gain useful experience. If this does not satisfy you then you ought to consider scratch building your own.
