I'm beyond being "provocative". I am tired of the "Evereyone has to do it my way in a crude looking steel boat" attitude. Brent is incapable of understanding that the word is full of diverse and valid opinions. He is a luddite through and through.

I have dinner on
I have a fire in the firplace.
I have some nice music on the hi-fi.
I can argue all night long and actually I'd kind of like that.
Paulo: pour me a glass of good local wine please. I like meaty Riojas.
I'll pour you a glass of hearty, tannic, Pacific Northwest, Yakima Valley Cabernet

You still haven't accepted my challenge to allow a freighter to t-bone your boat at cruising speed in rough seas, showing how your boat "would have saved the Sleavin family" (your idiotic words here). So who's the chump that doesn't believe his own bull?

I'd be happy to give you a demolition derby shot at my Hunter. The problem is...you couldn't catch me...because your boat is so, ahm, "strong".

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent doesn't design sailboats. He designs last resort steel bunkers to live out one's waning days, alone, trapped below in cold, nasty weather, scared to death of the world outside, and growing more and more bitter, and smelly, while eating bad oatmeal for the 182nd day in a row....content in the thought that at least sinking won't be what does you in.

I think I'd rather sail - or sink. Prison has never appealed to me.

Your are trying to insult me? Local wine and you talk about a Spanish wine?

If you are not too low on finances and want to try a lifetime experience just try one of those two, if you can find it (we try to drink it all):

Pêra Manca | Salt of Portugal

Barca Velha: the precious red from the Douro | Portugal Daily View

if you are not so well in $$$$ try this one:

+++ TAPADA do CHAVES +++ Vinhos e Espumantes

or this one:

Quinta do Côtto :: Home

I am listen music too, not cold enough for the fireplace.

This music:



Regards

Paulo

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hey Bob, my 9 year old boy just designed a boat - no kidding. He gave me the drawing about 30 minutes ago. I was wondering what he was working on over there at the kitchen table.

I'll put it up later and let you give him some direction. He'd like that I think.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Wines are much like boats........Many are good, many are not so good. Some, well, lets just say not worth drinking! Kinda like coffee in my book! All wine area's make some excellent down to basic table wines. A couple bucks a bottle, if it tastes bad, rancid, you toss it, open the next one. OThers, you pay a bunch more, expect it to be purrrrrrrrfect! better hope it is.

I do agree, Portuguese wines and ports are hard to find around here. But the Columbia river valley in E wash does brew up some really good stuff!

Not that this should remind me, but need to get the rag to CSr for Kim on his boat........

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I am really impressed with the fittings.. Remind me of the old-school bronze fittings..

Will they be stainless?

Machined?

Marty, one of the wines I had talked about is someway related with boats:


"Pedro Álvares Cabral took bottles of Pêra Manca in the voyage that resulted in the discovery of Brazil, in 1500."


and the one called "Barca Velha" even more: The name means "old boat"

A wine brand that lasts for over 500 years cannot be that bad

Regards

Paulo

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Paulo,
Very true, a brand that can last 500 years, stay in one family per say for that long too.....you know it is in the blood of the family! But here were BP and I are, along with Djodenda.......Kyrie is floating just fine in her slip on E dock david!..........500 yrs ago, not sure there was a European person around here! Altho I am sure the local natives were making some kind of brewed grog, wine, beer or what ever........just a different flavor than a wine from Europe!

I am wondering what that vodka?!?!?! found in Antartica would taste like that has been down there buried for 100+ yrs...........
