Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
The stability curve on the origamiboats site ( 175 degrees AVS)are as accurate and valid as any ,anyone else could ever come up with.
Thanks for the inside info, Brent. So, any buyers out there looking at this boat need to know that all the equipment listed is damaged and was gotten for free. Therefore, apparently the value of the boat is FAR less than the asking price. It actually might be a great deal for a cruiser who wants to bump into things. $3K-4K for a boat? Not bad.[/QUOTE]
Steve, Winston and Don all got their asking price for their brentboats, which sold quickly, far more quickly than plastic boats do these days.
Only a guy like Smack would expect to find all" NEW" gear on a "used" boat!
As soon as a boat leaves the dock, all it is gear is "Used."
When you work on a project , it is best to use only the sharpest tools, especially when it comes to decision making! Basing any of your decisions on advice from a tool as dull as a butter knife, would not be a good idea.
