Misunderstanding Paulo .... I was not asking you to cover steel boats.

Hell, I'd be quite happy for there to be a steel boat thread, a timber boat thread, an Interesting Sailboat thread and a Bob Perry thread. All in all how good would it be if we could convince other designers to post about their own work in the same generous manner that BP does ?

Damn it all Brent could prattle on all he wants about Origami, maybe we could even convince other steel boat designers to contribute. How good would that be ?

THAT would be AWESOME! I would LOVE to hear about steel boat design from designers that don't suffer from such a huge inferiority complex. Just, as Bob said, guys that love boats - whatever form they take.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hard reality is that other steel boat designers like Yves- Marie Tanton. my friend, do not want to be associated with Brent.

You do not want to hear that. But it is true.

Like ALL things big and small, all industries have a person some do not want to be associated with, others try like hell to be associated with someone. Look at the dingalings on the supposed right coast! The idiots that are trying to shut us down, have brought the others down to there level!

Just my 02 of whatever monetary funds need to be used today!

Neither I was saying so at least on the interesting boat thread. I said I was happy to contribute as a poster on a steel boat thread. I find it interesting. Contrary to wood it seems that there are several members that are interested in having steel boats.

That seems to me a great idea.

It's a real hoot to sail.


Anybody else want to come?

Years ago, Yves-Marie Tanton used to be a contributer here. Probably 10 or so years ago, he and I discussed his 'Steelstar' design, which was a pretty interesting design in a whole lot of ways. The design intent was to produce a high-performance steel design, and in that regard, conceptually it shows one approach. I suspect that the design would be somewhat different if done today.

(I hope that Mr. Tanton does not object to me showing the thumbnail of his work below.)

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.
