Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
The Francis Lee could easily cross oceans, she is engineered to be very strong and stiff. You might want to wear a harness while on deck, otherwise there is no reason she can't cross any ocean.
But she was not intended for anything other than daysailing and Salish Sea cruising. (However she does seem to do quite well while racing.)
