Stages of ages vs Deadman's boathouse
4x4 vs 4x4 - draw (enables 1:1 efficiency comparison)
15% att. Vs 15% att. - draw
4 fps vs 6 fps - Deadman's win
15 prev. Age goods vs 18 building's age goods - undecided
N/A vs 2h rush fragments - Deadman's win
N/A vs 25 guild treasure goods - deadman's win
N/A vs large amount of supplies - Deadman's win

End results most important stats:
Size: 4x4 - draw
Attack efficiency: draw
FP efficiency: Deadman wins
Useful productions benefits other then fps: Deadman's win

Overall Deadman's boathouse is pretty solid. I'm unsure why folks are turned off by the defence buffs that are coming with both buildings but I guess a situation of wanting it all. The overall efficiency for attacking armies is equal to stages of ages and fp efficiency is even better + the perk of directly fps stored in inventory among other useful-ish items. Sure it isn't easy to grind a ton of them compared to stages of events but overall it's better than stages of ages, which is fairly popular.
If I had a lot of cash on hand and where still building an attacking city deadman's boathouse would be a tempting other. Also the other version is tempting to have at least one of. Especially for the new players are the offered main buildings really good options. Personally I think depending on their horizon and excess to 1ups deadman's boathouse might be best for slightly more advanced newbies while Buccaneers' boathouse might be best for players more at the beginning of FoE. For my more established main city in OF deadman's boathouse will still become an very welcome new addition.

well... you just compared a 10 (?) level building to a 1 level building... sure, longterm it is a miniscule amount better, but you have to put in a whole lot more effort for that miniscule amount
Sure it isn't easy to grind a ton of them compared to stages of events but overall it's better than stages of ages
As I said, it's not as easy to get such in an large number. The production advantages it's offering ain't that "minuscule" imo. At least for newbies. Getting a reliable source of 1ups, directly daily 8fps in inventory and daily BP's for the Buccaneers boathouse is very solid. For a bit further advanced newbie the deadman's boathouse's production offers strategically valuable items like 2h supply rush fragments. Which can be helpful to deal with production quests in events long term. On top of directly in inventory stored fps which can be of strategic value for players who doesn't have an Arc at lvl (1)80. Overall those benefits are not that minuscule imo compared to an easily in mass obtained Lvl1 building but as you wish:
IA stats
Fire pagoda (7 lvls)
Att. 6% vs 8% (deadman wins with 2% more)
3fps vs 6 fps (deadman wins, Buccaneers even more)

Colossus lvl 10
Att. 7% vs 8% (deadman wins)
6 fps vs 6 fps (deadman draw, buccaneers wins with 2fps more)

Both heavily lose on production benefits. Sure for advanced players where only attack buffs' efficiency and fp efficiency counts the summer events buildings might not offer the greatest value compared to for example Eagle mountain or hero's tavern. Both are outstanding great buildings. Compared to animal crossing's attack efficiency the deadman is only slightly behind yet offers better productions for less space. Imo that's also giving it relatively value in comparison. Personally I tend to value new buildings with existing once of the same footprint as to compare which buildings they could replace. Regardless of the effort as in the long run, the effort needed to get them doesn't really matter in the end of the day.

Now that we don't have the surprise box anymore, will Inno make sure we know about upcoming events in advance? At least with the box timer you could see when the next event is due. It's very unwise to age up right before an event, so it would be good to know at least 4-5 days in advance.... Not 24 hours before...

Where is your problem - just age up at an end of an event or shortly after it ended. This way you will typically have about 2 weeks till the next event.
Also, there always will be a next event and you will always age up "shortly" before the next event unless you age up during an event... just prepare decently for the upcoming age and you should have no problems no matter when you age up.

Also, what are you so afraid of? The only thing that might be slightly worrying are quests like "defeat this strong army" when you have bad bonuses... but those would be hard even in your current age.

Often times, it will have an "OR" in there, so no worries. Also, those types are little compared to collection of goods (which can be circle traded with guild members) or the x-timed productions (blacksmiths are always useful due to their size).
