Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Brent's whole deal, his 'design philosophy' is that his steel boats are super strong when you hit a reef. That's it.
Thereby if you spend your time on your boat doing anything other than hitting reef's his boats are essentially unsuitable.
I would prefer a sailboat that sails, and to then try very hard to not hit reefs, than a reef-proof boat that doesn't sail.
Smack I believe there is a bit of a story to Brent's first Pacific crossing and hitting that reef, I recall snipets. I do give Brent credit for getting out there so young and living the adventure. That takes balls of steel. I wish he would post more about those adventures on here rather than just spouting Brentboat propaganda.
