Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Apparently later.

Brent can't open his eyes wide enough to see the thousands of my boats being enjoyed all over the world. He lives in a cave. He is a true luddite. He can't respond to my work without including an insult. He appears to be incapable of it. But that's Brent's personal problem. I keep wondering if he's jealous. He does not seem to be comfortable with his lot in life. But attacking me won't change that.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Just out of curiosity Bob, how many people have been lost at sea in boats of your design?



That's what I thought.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Nobody that I am aware of and I would usually hear about something like that. You'd think.

I like it that cas has me as "unreasonable". Seems I'm moving up.

What we are doing here is just mucking around with cockpit ergonomics, looking to see how the wheel diameter will work and where you have to stand to do what.
Hey Bob, don't you reckon she'd look better with an Australian flag on the stern?

..and I'm curious to see where you plan to put the nav lights..

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

ANy body know why when ever I look at this thread, I need my bobcat with rubber tracks to stay on top of the goo, and the 1 yd sheet bucket to attempt at clearing the goo? 5 yd dumptruck is not big enough to haul all the sheet away either.......sigh.......oh maybe I can get a BIGGER one, maybe with an aruminum bed instead of the wood/steel one.......might be lighter, stronger.......hmmmmmmmmmmm............

Good point, Marty! Perhaps it's because Bob is trying to work out real-world engineering details.. as opposed to a sales brochure
