Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Brent after all I was understanding what you wanted to say but I just didn't believe you were saying that traditional wood boat building is stronger than a cold molded wood hull. I don't now anything about wood grain but I know that weight for weight a cold molded wood epoxy hull is much stronger. Have a look at this 157' yacht with the hull made of multiple layers of wood strips bonded with epoxy resin:
The boat was designed by Bruce King and built by Hodgdon.
