Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Out, if your dodger is painted white, I wouldn't worry about heat in the cockpit. You'll be much cooler with the hard dodger than without it. The opening hatch in the windscreen is nice because with the boat pointing into the wind at anchor you get a nice breeze into the cockpit. Nice, but not essential.

+ 100. The funniest part of it is how the word credibility has been thrown around. Do any of the major thread participants really believe that this thread has enhanced their credibility? It has revealed many to be shallow and willing to stoop to any level. I will not buy a Bob Perry boat purely on the basis of this thread.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hey - I never had any credibility to begin with! THAT is the funniest part.

There is one basic difference at the bottom of this whole "tinkling sesh"...Bob Perry doesn't "force" his views down people's throats...insulting them simply for thinking something different.

Just follow this thing back to the beginning in the Wolfenzee thread and you'll see where Brent started in on Bob...and never let up. To expect Bob not to respond to insults like that is ridiculous.

Let me just put it this way...Brent has been banished from virtually every web forum he's ever been on for exactly the same behavior you've seen here. Bob hasn't.

Do the math.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

While a few harsh Words probably came from Bob's keyboard as well, why would you not buy a boat from a proven designer that defended himself against some pretty strong comments and far out "stories". Would you still consider a Brent Boat?
Heck Bob even said nice Things about Westsails while Brent did the opposite.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bob is a class act. Comment is uncalled for in my opinion. His designs speak for themselves. Wish other N.A.s had the courage to go on sites such as these to share their wisdom. I for one greatly appreciate his presence.

disclosure statement - my current boat was designed by Schumacher and one before by Crealock. Have owned Perry boats in past.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Well, I would never by a Brent boat. - They are far too ugly.

Reading this thread, it is clear mr Swain is using very strange arguments, attacing everyone in sight.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Ref the Dodger question, I'm pretty much with Copa. Our girl has a fixed screen with folding canvas top and fold down, roll up full cockpit enclosure.

Year or so back we went up the NSW coast in plus 35knots close hauled. Lots of spray and a very wet deck but no wet weather gear needed, didn't even wear shoes and my socks stayed warm and dry.

In hot weather open the screen but cover keeps us shaded.
