Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Chuckles:
But you are laboring under a false assumption. You are equating directional stability with having a long keel. That's just not so. The boats I know with the best directional stability have small-ish keels and nice, big spade rudders well aft. They turn on a dime and they hold a straight course. I've done dozens of boats like this. Look at the Valiant 40. It has a relatively small keel like STEPALAH's but it is renowned for its directional stability.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Well I have joined the Steel Pros and Cons Sailnet Forum. I could not refuse after Bob Perry called me to contribute. I do not know though, how long it will take to simply review 189 pages and still have something to say. Ah! Ah!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Welcome to sailnet.... again and to this thread in particular.

I hope you will not stick only around the "Pros and cons of steel sailboats" thread. All threads will benefit from your participation.

Just to be clear what I meant with that is saying that 10 years old design (I have searched) looks "sharp", meaning contemporary.

Where did you find those photos? That design is 10 years old now. You are the King of Research.

Bon soire Yves-Marie good to see you here.

Do you want me to revel my sources?

I have told you that 10 years ago I was thinking in building an aluminium passagemaker, that included a research about the best shipyards to build an aluminium boat

Hell no. Don't reveal your sources. I am just amazed at the esoteric information you are able to find.

I love looking at alu construction pics. Alu looks beautiful in the build stage.

Carry on.

That's the problem of mistyping on an IPad. It is guaranteed to auto-correct to somethi silly.

It's corrected now.

I was just kidding, I did post the source, the Folmer shipyard portfolio:
