Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'd like to stay away from rivets if I can. They don't look good to me and I can't see them fitting the look I am after in my peen pod. I am not pretending this is a boat for anyone but me, although we have four "orders" so far including my own. No price yet so you know how firm those orders are.

I really wanted a PT 11 Russell Brown boat. But they are works of art, like fine furniture. And a wee bit short on LOA for my tall frame. My boat will be such that I can chuck a couple crab pots in it without worrying about scuffing it up.
