Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Out:
I think you are wasting your time with Brent. He's like a broken record and I don't believe you can change that. He seems pretty unhappy with his position in the world of boat building and that's too bad. His attacks on everything and person not in the BS style has become tiresome. But I suspect he's stick with that reaction having run out of anything more cogent.

I know these pics are not very exciting to most people but the FRANCIS LEE is fully "tented" in the yard right now to keep it clean while painting proceeds. So, I can't get any good photos right now. But these two shots of the bootstripe show just how fair the hull is. Look at the reflections of the scaffolding in the topsides.

I think you nailed it Out. The row away factor is going to be sky high on this boat. But Kim's very lucky. Much of the time the FRANCIS LEE will sit at the end of Kim's dock in front of his house or on his mooring in front of the house. I look forward to seeing the boat on my own mooing for a day or two.
