Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Holy Cow! I just found a BrentBoat - perfect and rust-free, of course - actually under sail in the conditions Brent most prefers for his boats:

Ah, cruising.

Here are the lyrics to the soundtrack:

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Brent
A poor yacht designer who a penny never spent
Then one day hooked his rusty to a truck
And sailed across the prairie yelling "Perry's Yachts Suck!"

Steel that is. China prime. Environmental Bigfoot.

Now the first thing you know ol' Brents a hundredaire.
Floatin' in perfection with rocky road and pickled bear
DVDs said "Cruise the world for next to free"
So they loaded up a welder and moved to Poverty,

Hills that is. Rusting hulks, tow trucks…
