Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

As has become obvious, he is happy with a workboat level of finish.

Those blocks COULD be spiffed up a lot - use S/S instead of Al. Nice fasteners, acorn nuts & so forth. Sanding the cheeks smooth and then polishing them up bright - they wouldn't look bad at all.

Definitely be stronger than the stamped tinfoil most of the stock stuff is comprised of.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
