Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I must bow to your majestic ship building and yacht building experience bljones. I will go now and worship all the vessels you have crafted.
Mark, whether you agree with Brent's views or not (or like his boats for that matter), at least give the man some credit for knowing a thing or two about steel boat building. One of the things that drew me to his work was the ability for an amateur builder to get a fair hull (with nice compound curves and a short chine under the waterline) using simple techniques and tools. If you're interested in home-building in metal, it really is worth getting his book or checking out the video on origami building.
