Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I for one will NOT call myself an architect! as I am NOT one by any shape or form in ANY color you want to choose. I do have a 2 yr design degree tho. Even then, not sure I would use the term Designer after my name either. As I frankly have not as you say, put the time and energy into feeling I have ALL the person reflections to design on a high level. Yes I have the knowledge from classes, working with some EXCELLENT LA's etc. Even some excellent designers that AI have worked with do better than I. I can build a nifty wall, patio, lawn and plantings, and can decipher a set of plans to see if something is amiss and not right as I go.
I would ALSO need a 4 yr degree from a school, or enough work behind me, to pass the state exam and get a number like some engineers, drs, attorneys etc get passing those state exams. I have none of the above.
Any way, got AMoretto some what lit up today. Then a BIG 30 knot northerly with some rain came in, daughter and I decided tomorrow might be a better day to finish.......I also think I may not be voted the best lit/dressed boat in my club this year........one came in REALLY dressed up.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
