Yes, that is an option it has its advantages and disadvantages. I have seen other steel or aluminium bluewater boats with other keel options, even in what regards low draft. That option is not the one I prefer but as I said it has its advantages as you have pointed out.

Yeah - but how much filler did you have to use?

Ok I will play.

Must be the only spot on the face of the world with shrinking Internet access? I cruise as well(ok not right now, broken boat) and interestingly there is only a couple of spots on the east coast of Australia where I haven't had coverage if I so desired.

As for sitting in front of the computer for weeks, I note that you post here far more frequently than I, and I actually try to come here as often as I can, because I like the place, the people and find the discussion complements my sailing rather than detracting from it.

Interestingly here and at CF( oh sorry they banned you didn't they) the most prolific posters are often(but not always) the F\T long term cruisers. This is all by and by and off topic, other than to suggest again that you stop spinning crap and insulting us every time you post.

I saw some stuff on Angantyr on the web not all that long ago - she had been heavily or totally restored.

A real ship that one.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

My daughter just spent a year in Oz and we were shocked by how poor the Net access and telephone service was - very expensive and poor service/availability for both.

We all assumed that Oz would have facilities like all the other advanced countries but not so.

Apparently telecom services there are a government operation so......

She was on the east coast as well - Melbourne, Sydney etc.

Andrews had already posted some of Dykstra designed aluminium classic looking passagemakers. Some more pictures, showing also their modern underbody.

Relax Chall, the more he insults the quicker to his next banning.

It's like pulling off a bandaid, better a short sharp pain to get over it.

Only the keel does not make my style. But the design looks sharp. How many years has that design?
I mostly ignore this thread - but this one got me.
For a cruising boat - and let's be honest that's what these steel boats are - the longer, fuller hull is more optimal I would think.
I'd rather a boat that tended to keep her head where I put here than one that turned on a dime.
