Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

This is a huge thread ! since the cold is coming to my area I now have more time to read. One little Article I just finished had a steal sail boat exploring around Greenland.
Would it be a proper assumption that steal boats are better suited for cold water adventure ?
Good day, Lou

No, not at all. It is always better if you pay for your boat.

Good day, Lou
Bob is joking again

You mean obviously steel sailboats.

Yes, normally sailboats for Antarctic or Arctic expeditions are made of Aluminium or Steel. Steel is by far the most used material for that.

It is also the material used on boats that make "charter" on the Antarctic or Arctic. If the boat is not professionally used, meaning heavy duty for a long time, I mean for pleasure boats whose owners want to sail one or two times on high latitudes, the more common choice is aluminium. An aluminium boat is much faster than a steel boat, not as strong but stronger than a wood or fiberglass boat, namely in what regards ice contact.

Paulo

Of course you would not try to steal a steel boat! But I would bet you would try to steal a FRP/GRP or equal boat! But then we would not be talking about a steal or steel boat now would we?!?!?!?!

With that, how is the aruminum boat coming along?

You mean there are more than one language out there!?!?!?!? nooooooooooo!!!!!

Could be, I did manage to flunk a french class in high school, along with an english class or two or three.....not sure how I did that, something about improper grammer or some such thing.......

I guess my Welsh born Grandma did not teach me english well enough.......Now come to think of it, Welsh would be celtek or some kind of spelling like that.......Nor am I an orator like a great x6 family member, John Philpot Curran (24 July 1750 – 14 October 1817.
