Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Fuzzer:
I can't believe you tried to whizz below on the Ft10m.
It's not that kind of live aboard.

Of course Brent is going to say, "Oh yeah just see what happens to an FT10m when it goes on the rocks."

To begin with, the Ft10m, that could sail circles around your 34'er, is just a race boat and not a cruiser. But since you were probably going to bring up the subject I'll say that an Ft10m in Sydney Harbor broke its mooring in a storm and pounded on the rocks for two days There was damage to the lifting keel trunk but the rest of the boat came through the ordeal very well. The boat is still racing.
