Here are the lyrics to the soundtrack:
Well, I have to say that it is a very strong boat. How many boats you could tow like that? LOL
After looking at the video I would say that grounding at slow speeds should not be a problem even with rocks.

I don't like Brent attitude regarding all other type sailboats but obviously he does sailboats that satisfy a small segment of the market. There are some very experienced members on this forum that dream having a Brent's boat. They are strong, cheap (for a steel boat) and with a big voyage potential. If speed and sailing fun is not very important, they seem pretty safe to me and able to go anywhere with a minimum of maintenance. In my opinion they could be nicer without losing any of their attributes, including low price, but it seems that to some beauty is not very important.
