Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Back when I built kayaks I was a tad more nimble and could stand in my 16 footer My dingy on davits for years has been a 9ft Minto Let me tell you it got tippery aand tippary. Now I have a 10 ft davidson and I'm becoming concerned with its stability. Dog paddling while looking at my really pretty tender drifting away leaves me cold.As an old fart,I like the concept of big beam wrapped around a pramish bow. Just sayin.
