Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

mark,

I'll have to take a pic of the boat friday if I am up that way. I have to admit, it was not a "BAD" looking boat. This one looked ok overall. It is what I think one of BS's boats should look like in "orgami" construction. It had a pilot house design. which could be good around this area considering how gray it can be.......BUT, that particular design is not what I would have in mind.

On the other hand, in Port Angelas, was an older Fisher pilot house motor sailor. Even when those came out, I liked the look of them! They looked PNW at its best. Not sure how well they sail per say, but have to be better than that steely I saw today! ALong with way the heck better looking! one I could handle being seen in! or having the best women in ones life's name on the rear!
