Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'm not a expert, and don't remember ever staying in a Holiday Inn Express - but

Brent, or someone that is -

Doesn't the hard chine, being below the water line, reduce tenderness (i.e. make it stiffer) - which I count as a good thing.
I suspect it adds drag, but a cruiser is not a racer.

Brent, I don't agree with a lot of things you say - but if I was building a boat in my yard it would be one of yours.
