Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I'm betting VERY sub-$50K. In the current local market I think he'd be doing very well to get $30K. Currently there are lots of good quality "fragile" glass boats over 40' - Frasers, Philbrooks etc. ASKING $40K or less. I know of a Reliance 44 that has been around, eastabout, that needs little more than stores to go again. This is a big, solid, fully outfitted offshore boat and they can't get $90K for it. There is a Seamaid 45 that has done the Pacific circuit, ASKING $85k.
These boats have all been on the market for quite a long time - years in some cases so I sure can't see a price in that range for a Brentboat, even the best known one.
P.S. Haida Gwaii on an F27? I don't think so! Maybe if they ferried it to the islands and day sailed up there. Even that though.... VERY wet & cold & stormy up there.
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.
