Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

As long as there is new information avaliable I am entranced. My father worked
for Sandia labs for 37 years. One afternoon in about an hour our neighbor explained to me the entire process of epitaxial deposition used in the manufacture of semiconductors I still remember. That little whaleboat has touched a joy that I have not felt in years. For that I can never thank you enough. I should have gone down to the ocean when I was 18. I might have drowned (adrenalin junkie) , but to have that feeling it would be a small price. I have been looking at Valiant, Tyana, Baba, even some steel double enders. I am hooked.
