One important property of wood: it floats. While somewhat less durable than modern shipbuilding material, it stays afloat even if the vessel is destroyed. Which may be one of the reason why wooden boats, from fishing dinghies to large sea-faring schooners, such as this sambuq in Al-Makha, Yemen, are in no hurry to disappear under the pressure of fiberglass and aluminum.
To illustrate the seaworthiness of wooden ships it's enough to mention that a sambuq just like this later took me, among dozens of other passengers, across the Red Sea to Djibouti.
