Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Maybe it could, but that's not the point - it was designed (so I understand) primarily to be a singlehanded daysailer, not a long term cruiser.

People have sailed all sorts of unlikely things across oceans, that's not to say that was their original design intent or that they are particularly appropriate for it.
