Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'm in Brent-land now and was anchored near a steel boat last night in the Octopus Islands (northern Quadra Island, about a long day's sail from Comox). It would be great if his website had photos of not only the two boats that he's built, but others that have been built using his processes. I wondered if the boat that I saw last night was one of his, but didn't see the owner and get a chance to ask.

There were actually two steel boats in the islands night, but the other was multihull (looked like a cross between a cruising catamaran and a battleship, I should have taken a photo).
