Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

GRP boats in all their iterations are here to stay until something better comes along. It won't be steel.

Just a reminder, again, this Nordic 40 just completed a solo circumnavigation. Remarkably it is still in one piece. The owner is very happy with the boat. It's a great looking boat.

Brent's constant whining that our GRP boats are not up to the job can be proven wrong over and over just with my own designs. Lighten up Brent. You like steel boats and some people don't. What's wrong with that?
