Yeah, people forget just how strong epoxy/wood can be... Mix the tensile, compression, and shear strengths inherent in something like the MC 13 and you really have something... I knocked one end of my MC 13 off one of it's sawhorses onto a concrete floor and barely scratched the boat...
I still have the first boat I ever built (some 30 years ago), and aside from some touch ups and paint, it still looks good, and still would cut most plastic boats in half in a collision...
