Re: Want to buy a used 40-50 live aboard Sail
Is that really believable????
Ah, yep. That was/is the thickness of the layup in the keel stub where the cast iron/lead keel is bolted on. Generally however, the hull thickness at the turn of the bilge is somewhat less but the boats are very heavily built and sail like a witch (and are quite handsome to boot!). Frers never designed a slow boat.
"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
