Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Too funny- Smack you missed your calling.

Still think I'll carry a few extra snatch blocks and a couple of no stretch lines twice as long as the longest line on my boat. Also have one extra of the main blocks for major working lines ( only spec'd two sizes to make that easier to do). Also have a couple of those new fangled low friction eyes to lash anywhere. I spec'd all the working lines on my boat to be extra long and will reverse the way they are lead yearly. They're long enough so if I see wear I can eliminate that section and replace when available. Carry fids.Time is precious. It's something you can't buy or replace. Have no interest in spending time on something I can avoid spending time on. Rather be sailing.
