Can anyone suggest a website containing collections of photos of traditional wooden boats?

Try this one:

Note the little revolving stars in the leftmost column and click one. Check out the big 'uns towards the bottom of the list.

They advertise in WB, but the full particulars of each boat, sailplan, accommodations, photos, and so on, are all there on the web page.

As good as looking at some of John B's threads.

See about 240 photos of member-yachts of the German Classic Yacht Association: http://www.fky.org/Yachten_1.html

One of my new favorties is a French site at http://www.douarnenez2000.com
They have a gallery with 1800's luggers etc, and links to what I think is most of the historic French boat organization sites.
If you use your favorite search engine and the key word "douarnenez" you will find much more, including the sites for earlier years events and music festivals, etc. Douarnenez must be the Aspen of Brittany.

How many people use this forum....? I thought about 100 or so. or am I misinterpreting the figures.

I think there are a lot of lukers - closet woodies...

John B, Your photos are great. Thanks for posting.

As far as the number of hits, 700 would indicate that this forum is visited by a alot of folks who just lurk and don't register. Or could be that the counter is located in the State of Florida .....
