Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

She has been a pita from my standpoint with the light winds for foulweather bluff we've had the last few years. As have the t-birds and a few others. Get winds above 10-15, I leave them behind. My 6500 lb wt seems to help here. I have the SA, but boat was built for 10-15 in Europe. i guess I need the lake rig. Which would be 5' taller! I still like my little boat!

I think I have driven by betts in Anacortes on my way to a place next door, along with MSC, and a rigger a few blocks north. There should be a marina repair or two near there two that I have been too.


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
