Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Can't say I am all that fond of the look of hard chine boats but having owned one I've come round to multi chines. The slab sideness of the hard chiner does not please my eye, somewhat wonky though it may be. Otoh, I always felt that our steel VDS34 was a better looker than a mate's cold moulded version of the same design. That is said even though I'd have preferred the timber boat to the steel and the timber would blow us out of the water except in a big blow.
