Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent- just got into Newport r.i. Myboat's in the show. Coming down hit something at 8.4 kts. About 4' square white thingy about one foot below the surface. In the chop didn't see it until it passed under the stern.
Amazing thing no damage to hull or rudder. Although it made a big thunk. Didn't sink or be swallowed by a whale either.
