Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Don't get yer panties into an uproar there Brent. Of course GRP is the hull. Still don't see any big cost savings. Yep, sure lots of bits and pieces can be fabricated from the scraps, found it interesting when the guy had to cut some 125+ tabs for the interior, weld another 100 or so SS nuts to the deck and all the other detail work you conveniently forget to mention. Wiping down the interior hull with vinegar, finding a guy to spray foam the interior, galvanizing the stringers, etc, etc, etc. Sounds like folks had to run all over creation to cob together a boat.

Steve ,you wouldn't know an inaccuracy in steel boat discussions if it bit you in the ass. You now almost nothing about the subject of this discussion, having zero hands on experience with it, as do most of the other critics in this discussion.
Brent, baby, it takes ZERO "steel boat experience" to compare your conflicting claims in one post with those in another. It takes ZERO "steel boat experience" to research your untrue claims on the interwebs.

So actually, yes, I (and others who care to take the time to check them out) can easily spot your frequent "inaccuracies" when you post. You're just not that smart...despite your YEARS of "steel boat experience". Such experience simply makes the whoppers that much more inexcusable. So I'm just trying to make sure your inaccuracies/whoppers don't bite anyone else in the ass.

BTW - I'm sitting on my Hunter, toasty warm with a 2 degree C north wind blowing 25 knots, I'm drinking a fine scotch, listening to great music, and glad I'm not stuck with a steel boat and the bitterness that seems to come with it.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Holy cow Smack:
Can I have a glass of that fine scotch?

I've got the Tv on waiting for U of W Huskies game, my wife and my son are graduates. I had a nice dinner and I'm not willing to put up with any BS tonight.

I think I got a new client today. We'll see. He is a spin off from the QUAIL pioject He will have to pay for the very best design work, I tell my clinets that I have to have the budget to do my very best work. It's what I do. I am good at it. That's the way I like to work.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Tough life on these GRP boats. 28c here in Thailand. Mango and papaya for brekkie. A stroll down the beach for a 2 buck lunch, maybe a massage later. I'll think about a scotch later. Or a G & T when the sun gets a little lower

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent:
I sat down and posted a long answer to yur last questions to me. Then I deleted it. I don't think you are interested in what I think of your work so why bother. I think what I posted would just stir up more animosity. Except for right here on this web site our worlds will never collide. Oh, there is the problem of your friend buying my Passport but I suspect you can get over that. I trust none of my sailing friends will buy a BS boat. I think it's better if you just go your way and I'll go mine. We both have very different styles that share nothing whatsoever in common. I can't see that changing.

"Straight from hunger" is a common expression, maybe you could Google it. I did.

"Grim" is a common word, surprised you have never heard it before. It's not "home made" you can Google a definition.

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.
