Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
My clients are resourceful enough to avoid the extreme foolishness of buying the most expensive items they can find for everything on the boat. So your question is not only irrelevant, but insulting to them. Most buy a used main sail and hang it without doing anything to it, battens and all, then go sailing , getting around to a battenless mainsail later
Then price everything used. It's really not that hard, Brent.
It's a shame that you, the most experienced authority on building and maintaining steel boats, refuse to help out the wannabe cruisers who are interested in a steel boat. The fact that you promote your boats without giving ANY kind of real numbers on what it takes to build it from start to finish is insulting to them.
Real costs may be irrelevant to you. But not to most sane people.
