Steel Sailboats - Opinions of Owners and Others

Since steel sailboats are not very popular in the U.S., I seldom see them or have a chance to talk with steel boat owners.

Steel sailboat owners on this forum -- tell us how you like owning a steel sailboat. How would you compare the pluses and minuses to owning a fiberglass sailboat? How much problem have you had controlling rust?

I would especially be interested in hearing from any owners of Topper Hermanson built boats, and also steel sailboat owners who have used their boats for cruising.

Non-Owners of Steel Sailboats -- OK, since we probably will not hear from many steel sailboat owners given there are so few, let's hear any opinions of you non-owners too.

Here's the boat which I have considered buying that got me started researching steel sailboats (need to cut and paste into your browser since Sailnet will not let me post a link yet):
