Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I have found when one does some of the 3d work, or when an architect does a bit more on the plans than a basic line drawing or two or three, one is able to many times see the project better up front. Some folks have no way to picture things like this in their brains from a 2d paper plan.

Then one can also from a 3d rendering, figure out empty places with in the plan that can be better utilized etc too.

Granted I am coming at this from a landscape plan as I have been a contractor for 30 some years, and do have a design degree. BUT, one can see more from a Architect that does 20-30 pages of plans views etc vs a 1-3 page simple plan as I typically did. Probably because I prefered to be getting my hands dirty in the soil, cutting the concrete wall blocks or pavers, etc to spending my day at a desk drwaing the plans.
