Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'm not implying anything and as I read this thread we are talking about your boats not mine. Of course loads will vary from owner to owner and from time to time. But if we could see one of your weight studies we would have some benchmark to work from in discussing weight issues of BS designs.

I do weight studies in three stages:
Light ship or as launched
Half load or as you might typically find the boat at the dock on any given day
Full load, tanks full and a lot of personal gear and stores.

Of course, if you don't have a weight study you can publish I would certainly understand. I can't imagine someone who struggles with numbers like you do even doing a coherant and thorough weight study.

Here is MOBISLE a truly fast passage maker, at hull speed and on it's lines on it's way to Australia. A very good looking boat to my biased eye. Transom just kissing the water making use of every inch of sailing length. Of course I had a good weight study.

We'll wait for your weights.
