Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Glad Kyrie is well, Marty.. I worry about my boat when I'm away....

And, slightly more on topic, I am using neurons thinking about whether my boat's flat bottom is worth the extra speed..

I can never get all the water out of her flat bilge, and it sure is noisy from wave slap when I am at anchor and the wind is opposing the current.

I never thought of stuff like this until I started reading about it here and in Bob's book.

Denda:
Those s.s. fittings will be cast 316. Client demands 316.

Smackers:
I have been coaching the son of B. J.Porter, Will, from Crusing Anarchy for several months now. His design efforts have come a long way.

You already know I would be honored to work with your son. Any time.

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

Paulo, I recently had a bottle of Pęra-Manca and I must say it was exceptional.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'll go on line today and see if I can Google up a US distributor of those wines. I'll call my local wine shop but I'm skeptical he would have it.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I am in love. I am head over heels in love.

I have had my 2 glasses of wine( AUSTRALIAN Shiraz of course) and now I just can't stop looking at her.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I can't avoid thinking of this whenever the subject of Australian wine comes up:

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I bought a bottle in New Zealand called Purple Death.

It said on the label that it was a "Christian wine, because after one sip you'll say Jesus Christ!"

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent we re having folks over for brunch. Expresso,cappochinos, mimosa s, bloody marys and more food from around the world than you know of. Finish with port and a Cuban for the boys. Serve on the stone patio by the fire pit. Chat about moving aboard the boat this summer and how these folks will meet up with us so they can enjoy the sun and glories of g-d creations.
Brent in just one year my boat has stood up to storms and the fury of the sea but she's a joy to sail,live on and look at.
P.s. Just transferred my Scarlatti , Mozart and willie to iPad to put in the boats sound system.
Brent some live others exist.it s not about money it's about attitude and wanting to embracing beauty

Bob that's a very beautiful boat.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Thanks Out. I try hard and I have a great team to help me.
Why don't you throw in some Hank Williams III on the Ipod. It'll get the companies attention after Mozart. He sounds just like his Grampy.

Speaking of embracing beauty I think I'll go hug my wife.
