Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I sat down and posted a long answer to yur last questions to me. Then I deleted it. I don't think you are interested in what I think of your work so why bother. I think what I posted would just stir up more animosity. Except for right here on this web site our worlds will never collide. Oh, there is the problem of your friend buying my Passport but I suspect you can get over that. I trust none of my sailing friends will buy a BS boat. I think it's better if you just go your way and I'll go mine. We both have very different styles that share nothing whatsoever in common. I can't see that changing.
"Straight from hunger" is a common expression, maybe you could Google it. I did.
"Grim" is a common word, surprised you have never heard it before. It's not "home made" you can Google a definition.
I take that to mean you have no answers, confirming my comments.
