Re: Full or fin keel?
Forgive me for getting off topic Finn vs full. One of the advantages I see to the modern fin keel boat is not using wood. Why do they take a J- boat sparten as it is and put wood inside? Will this not increase the amount of work needed to maintain the boat? The EU from what I am looking at likes to use more wood below decks ? The craft work and detail is very good. I would like plastic fiber glass and limited SS.
My dad had a wood boat. Winter for me as kid was spent on my back sanding. I do not want to sand , stain, varnish, paint any more wood unless the pay rate is great. Good day, Lou
