Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I think many boats have an 'awkward' angle of view.. ie some aspect that looks off, an angle or a line that doesn't please the eye, but move up/down/over a few feet and it's gone. (with our boat it's from dead astern)

The ability to render in 3D before the finalized build plans must make it possible to recognize and perhaps address such an issue before its too late.
