Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent:

You seem a bit angry tonight. Not everyone wants to do it your way. Live and let live makes sense to me.

I know this couple well and they are quite experienced. I don't think you have to worry much about ever having to get along with them. Tyhe husband is a commercial builder and he lkies quality things including quality boats. They like beautiful boats and they like boats that go to weather. 4' draft would be a pain in the ass to try to drive to weather. This is fact, not theory. Unless you have VPP data that you can post here to prove otherwise. Your hyperbolic performance claims don't work for me. But you don't have VPP data. I already know that.

BTW: It's only 8' draft, not 8.5'. I fibbed.
