Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

she looks like she has a bullet proof door and windows. They also look like a recent addition and not finished yet. Wonder what business the owner is in?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

That boat has BS all over it. But I like the color selection and the PH is not as awkward looking as most of Brent's. At least the builder had an eye.

Nice door. Makes me wonder who is being held captive below.

Those lifelines would not meet ISAF standards.

Maybe it used to belong to Rick James.

If you have a 4" bulwark and a 30" stanchion above it, the standard is met. The green boat does not show the middle lifeline, while the white boat does.

And besides that they look odd on that size of boat contributing to make it less nicer.

Even regarding safety, ISAF rules apart, they don't seem a good idea to me:

When someone goes to the front of the boat with bad weather, one goes not walking like on a boardwalk, but moving low near the deck holding short a line to a jack line. On that position the bigger risk is a big wave to push someone not over the lifelines but below the lifelines. The bigger space that boat has between the second lifeline and the deck does not contribute to safety and I don't think it compensates in safety the superior height of the first one.

Rick James the bass player? I vaguely remember him.

This is exactly where I think Brent's notions of seamanship are misinformed. He seems to assume that you simply walk to the bow in rough conditions standing fully upright and designs his super tall stanchions to this notion. Well, maybe you'll do that once - and if you're still onboard afterward, you'll wish you had the same stanchion design the rest of the world has. ISAF ain't stupid.

Apparently Rick James and his girl friend kidnapped some woman and held her captive as a sex slave for a few days.

Yep, that's the Rick James I had in mind.
Didn't know about the sex slave thing.
