Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I can understand economics drive the market. Cost and the ability to sell the boat makes or breaks it.
The skipper and the crew are the most decisive factor in safety and success.
So far I have by the numbers followed the crowd and picked what others have considered good boats.
I have to offer my thanks and gratitude to the folks that are posting. I am not in large crowd of sailors where I live. The sailors are just a few souls. It will be a bitter sweet day when my long term plans leave us separated by so much land.. The internet is making it possible to reach out and gain knowledge and benefits that would take years to accumulate by other means.
Good day, Lou
