With the likes of Perry and Tanton...it's a very rich life.

The OP is missing out.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

That BP boat looks less nice than a shack down on the Bayou! With a gator below as bait! or some such thing.........Me recalls my Glen-L 8 ball I built about 6th grade had a nicer interior than that boat, or the slightly larger Glen-L 12 had a bit more room, still nicer interior............

I don't know where you see it going off the rails. But I actually resurrected this thread at post 71 (5 months after it sunk beneath the waves). I did so primarily because of the over-the-top slagging going on in this thread:

Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

But, I also wanted to really work through the Pros and Cons of steel sailboats by finding real examples from real people building and/or sailing them. I'd say that was about as on-topic as you can get. I think it's been very informative.

I've been looking at that boat in Comox every August wondering what it's story was.. From the listing it's not a BS boat.

Custom 58 ft. off shore - 1984 Used Boats For Sale | Comox, British Columbia

Indeed a very fine finish and lots of good gear, though the entire rig looks cobbled together from aluminum pipe, certainly not any kind of usual mast section. As Sloop's and the listing pics indicate she's barely roughed in below. She's been there for at least 3 years now..
