Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Paulo- have to agree with Sky. Once nearly got sick working in and dark, smelling bilge and diesel while trying to find a throughhull leak during a storm. Sails had already blown out so weren't moving that fast.
I love racing multihulls to point I giggle when the rudder(s) start to cavitate and the rig sings. Still the ride is harsh. When folks are scared and have trouble moving about without injury they are more likely to puke. Recent article in one of the national sailing rags here in the States points out the marked benefit of relaxation techniques in decreasing mal de mare.
