Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I have to say I am a bit jealous, you braved those salmon infested waters with only the protection offered by your fine choice in Hawaiian flowerdy shirts to protect you from the vicious salmon. As a fellow Hawaiian flowerdy shirt connoisseur I think the choice of the blue shirt was an excellent choice as it offers superior protection in the case of salmon attack.
I know the sailing must have been great, and even if it was on a strange tri hulled thing it was still a day spent enjoying the thrill of risking your life on the waves of the salmon infested waters of the great PNW. I will have to stop by sometime when I get back on the water next year and perhaps we can compare Hawaiian shirts and swap tales of close calls with the terrifying salmon.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
