Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Now for just the hellishness of it.......Could a good skilled welder or equal build frankie to look as close as one can, in steel? I'm betting a GOOD welder probably BS talking here folks. Aluminum would probably be easier I would think....... Then again, I have never worked with these materials. SHould ask Ying and Yang......twin sons with welding degree's I suppose........

Just to get us back on track.....

did Bob ever get that aruminum beach boat built he designed for himself?

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
