Steel Hull and Rigging Question
Can anyone recommend any good steel hulled boats for some serious ocean cruising? I want something that is very strong, seaworthy, has a good turn of speed, and traditional looks. Also what rigging would you recommend for a single-handed sailor? I am very taken with the schooners and ketches but I feel that is more my heart then my head making the decision! Please give me some direction!
* I really like the traditional look of designer: Colvins gaff rigged schooners (42ft Gazelle and 36ft Saugeen Witch). Anybody have any opinions on these boats? Any other suggestions? Tell me please if it is a crazy dream to single-hand one of these boats!!!
