Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

OK.. for the rest of you out there.. How much is "row away factor" important to you?

Is there a steel boat out there that you personally feel has a great one?

For me, most of them don't really, although there are some that look OK to me.

Dave:
Thanks for the offer. Maybe some other time.
Still thick fog here at the beach.

I think row away factor is huge but it's so subjective. Maybe just "I like my boat" is good enough.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I like my boat and it is way more than good enough.

I am a fortunate person.

Thanks, Bob. Not many people "get it", but when they do, it's pretty special.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Think the Puffin series of steel boats have a great "row away" factor. Very specialized thin water boats but pretty. Got to crawl around one in N.H. when I was doing the due diligence before building the Outbound. Inside was gorgeous as well. Just got back from sailing back and forth from the Annapolis show. More I use the vessel the prettier she is in my eyes. I think that's the real "row away" factor. Not how you feel when she first launches but how you feel rowing away after you have put some miles on her and understand the genius of all the little things that make her work for you. Things like how you can move about down below in a sea. How she handles the waves. How she sails. The quality of the workmanship. How things are placed just so allowing you to work the boat easily. How she sleeps. What it takes to make a meal and take care of yourself on passage. The whole Bauhaus thing- form follows function and still get something beautiful not industrial in appearance.

Also think the Atlantic 45 by Kanter was a classy looking craft.

Uh-oh. I remember Bob using the term Gestalt at some point around here - now we have Bauhaus. Throw in some De Stijl - and things are about to REAL up in here!

Seriously, it's cool to see some new design-heads joining the fray. Welcome.
