If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Looks very nice Bob

The narrow beam does make it hard to see what a large boat it is

For easily built small steel sailboats, I don't have much competition, and have been as busy as ever ,thru all the critical debates of my methods, with a spike in interest and orders for books and plans during the boat design debates. Those I have handed my job over to, have had to go into hiding, to get a break from all the work that is being offered to them.

Condolences for the death of your relevance.
We know what is Bob doing presently, he is following the construction of his last design and he has posted plenty of photos of it.

For what you say even if you are cruising now (by the way where are you cruising?) you have certainly lots of work waiting for you and some new projects to start. If you want to be credible please talk to us about those projects and when you come back (when do you restart working again?) please post some information about those projects. We, or at least some here, would be interested in having a look.

Best regards and fair winds.

Paulo

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Tom:
Exactly. When you get either bow or stern on with the boat it is kind of odd because the boat has less beam than many modern 30'ers. But even yesterday, out of the shed, the boat is still in slings and you cannot get a clear view of the uninterupted hull. We will have to be patient and wait about two more weeks I suspect.

Kim and I joke about being overtaken by FANCIS LEE. It's going to look like a really fast 30'er coming up on yout stern.

I'm also anxious to see the cove stripe on the boat. We are bringing in a specialist Dr. of stripology for this job.

Paulo:
Technical files sent vie email this morning. Enjoy.

Mr. Winston was not there. Had he been I think he and Ruby would have gone nuts together. Ruby is very playful.
