Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Jon:
I know that Garden boat but that was not one of the boats that Kim and I drew inspiration from. But you are correct. There is a resemblance. Especially when you would have us compare the stern of one boat with the bow of the other! That is the SLIVER's bow in that photo. I admit you have to look carefully to tell one end from the other. It was the standard shop floor joke.

Primarily the profile look of the SLIVER is straight from a L. Francis design. The sectional shape especially aft is my own. There is nothing unique about the forward sections or midsection. But aft it is different.

Out:
I think we are at least two months away from sea trials but be certain that there will be lots of photos taken.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
