The boat in the picture is Ed's boat, Metal.

Right you are!... nice to 'meet' you again. It was in Pt McNeill, we were part of the 'fish'n'chips on the rocks' group..

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

OK, Yves-Marie Tanton and I go waaaaaaay back. He used to be my boss. I'll give him a phone call tomorrow and coax him over here. He knows his stuff.

See, I am useful.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bought my boat through anchor yachts.he also is dealer for waterline in New England . The waterlines are drop dead gorgeous but unfortunately too dear for my wallet. There is no reason a metal boat need be ugly.look forward to M.Tautons input.always loved his inventiveness .

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Just got off the phone with Yves-Marie. He will be here later.

We had a good chat. He has lots of experience with the origami method and he has been doing a lot of alu and steel boats lately. Keep in mind that Yves-Marie has designed just about every kind of boat imaginable, from state of the art racing machines to large power yachts. He has a ton of design experience and a good eye.

He talks funny though.
