Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
According to people who know him, Brent lives with his sister in a flat. So not a hermit.
I live full time on my 31 ft twin keeler, in which I cruise mainly between Quadra Island and Sidney BC, with occasional voyages to the South Pacific, and points further north. I try avoid spending more than 2 weeks in one place. Currently I am anchored among several of my 36 footers, all with full time liveaboards, all of whom have previously lived on stock plastic boats, before upgrading to something warmer, tougher, safer and much drier.
Last time I lived on land full time was 1976.
