as for the steel, heavier and more solid construction
Ok i can said, i will lose 1 or 2 knots on sailing.

If your really interested in a steel boat, sign up for a welding course at your local community college. Your going to need these skills for a steel boat. Hope you like sanding, grinding, chipping, rust, dust, painting etc. It will be your LIFE for many, many years.
