Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Think bright work is drop dead gorgeous and on classic boats "classic" so the way to go. I had a Tayana and even the stick and boom were bright. The trim on my PSC was bright. Had interesting conversations about to prep, how to thin and how to pull. Could spend hours talking about foam v. badger. But given budget always did my own wood. Have "wooded" two boats and brought them back. Think the last time killed it for me. Now get to fix heads and sand bottoms instead. Just as much fun.
