Very easy one. What is really meant by strengh should be more specific. Wood got certain advantages that make it stronger than steel depending on what you call strengh.

if the ship of wood requires a great deal more material to make it as strong as the ship of steel then it cannot be of an EQUAL size to the ship of steel can it

Sure it can dark-prince. The hull of the steel ship would be thinner, while the wooden ship would be thicker, with interior bracing, but the same size.
