What are the maintenance differences between Carvel and edge butted and glued? 

Carvel is generally caulked with cotton and a seam filler that requires replacing whilst edge butted and glued or strip planked does not require the same degree of maintenance.

but other than caulking they have the same maintenance burdens?  And risks of worm etc? just wondering why he'd have chosen traditional construction over eg triple skin, glassed.  

Owned this for 20 years edge butt and glued strip planked no glass built 1970’s did not require any more maintaining than any other yacht that I have owned or seen.
