Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bob ,Thane is a modified Spray, 40 lodeck 22ton .all yellow cedar, frames 4x4 laminated on 18 inch centers and deck beams 6x6 on 24", planking is 2x2 strip yellow cedar. Fairly stout and CSI for 18 passengers. See her on you tube Thane sail past. I've taught welding at tech school so building in steel (origami) wouldn't be a problem but there is something about a woodie that brings in 6 figures a summer so I don't have to exert myself.
