Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I ask for a simple laundry tip and what do I get?

Sounds a lot like your suggestion ( and problem), that if we cant eliminate environmental problems completely, we should do nothing to try to reduce them.

Oh ya Steve! Try take it a bit easier on the scotch . It shows in your posts!
This post sets a new standard for irony.

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.

Jon:
When Brent can't come up with a good, honest reply he resorts to the "you must be drinking too much" ploy. More projecting as far as I can tell.

Or, when he can't defend his boats on an objective level he tries the "My carbon footprint is smaller than yours". Not sure carbon footprints even have a place on this thread. Of course it is Brent. I wear a size 15 shoe. My footprint will always be bigger than yours. That's just reality.

Same here... I'm as opinionated about fabrics as some people are about hull materials and if someone's gonna ruin my wool it better be me.

Casio:
I've got your back. When we first moved to the beach shack I started to notice bleach "stains" on my flannel shirts. Shitski! In time I realized they were all on the right sleeve. Then I noticed that I had bought "Soft Scrub with Bleach" and I was using it in the sinks and on the fireplace glass. Doh! The stains were on my scrubbing arm.

I keep a jug of real bleach around. I dump it in the heads from time to time. I may wash some of our white towels in it. But it remains scary stuff.

I now use that Oxyclean stuff. It seems to work really well. I want a white handkerchief to be a white handerchief.

I always carry a white handerkerchief. I always asked my boys for white Irish linen handkerchieves for Christmas. Until I found out what they cost!

Holy cow Dad, these hankies were $40!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

You know, this could totally work!



"The BS Container"! Just a couple of cuts here and there - then fold her right up!

Brent, you really need to bring your years of steel, origami, and cruising experience to this project. It's the perfect legacy!

If you're willing to wear all white or all black for everything you can avoid these color issues. I'm a weirdo and wear all black all the time, but I can change my oil in my nicest shirt and it still looks good.

Haha, that could almost work if you could find some way to fill the corrugations below the waterline.. Maybe fill them with molten lead and that can be the ballast. Or just call them new vertical faux lapstrake technology which makes the hull tougher and the cockpit drier. Also add some chine runners so it can point to windward tacking through 179 degrees while maintaining shoal draft and beachability.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Maybe Jeff could do a new thread, designing the optimal shipping container sailboat. PCP could add some hi tech features for the Euro crowd. Bob could add the canoe stern and Smack could narrate over a few Scotch's. The rest of us will have a good laugh. I wonder what the righting moment would be?
