Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats


Granted NOT the best picture. Here is a boat in Port Townsend I keep seeing weekly. Not too bad of a looking boat. But can not imagine it being able to go to forward with out drifting as much sideways as forward! Maybe with a CB, or a bit more draft via the full keel, or a modified fin, add some depth to the rudder........

A bit more sail area would probably help too. I would swag one needs at least 20 if not 30 knots of wind.........any way, my contraband.........oooops, contribution for the day!
