Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I don't think it's so much the building of a boat that makes them better seamen, although knowing every inch of your boat certainly contributes.
Rather, I think it's that the type of person who wants to/is capable of building their own boat also becomes a better seaman, for the same reason - they are more committed to it.
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.
