Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Okay I am mostly a lurker who sailed a lot growing up in many different kinds of boats who hopes to get back to sailing in a year or so. A lot has changed since I last owned a big boat (in 1994) and since then I have only chartered a few big boats.
I will probably never own a BP boat, however one of the reasons I started cruising and gave up dingy racing (besides the wife and kids!) was reading about the adventures folks were having in boats like the Valiant 40 (another boat I lusted after, in addition to a PS37), reading about BPs work as it happens with his clients is a privilege. Many people on this thread (e.g., Paulo, Jeff H, Steve...) contribute their knowledge and experience making this thread very enjoyable; please keep it up either here or on other threads. There are two reads I have been reading for months now this and Interesting Sailboats and that seems good enough.
Regarding Brent, he adds a lot of color to these threads with his views and the responses that he solicits from the truly knowledgeable have certainly increased my understanding and have been equally useful to other folks. So Brent, just calm down and we can all learn and have fun.
