Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
The Norseman 44 & 447 AC is way up my list of favourites. I, myself, personally think it has the best looking cabin structure you have ever designed. That picklefork effect at the mast was a stroke of brilliance IMHO - traps dropped handles and so forth, increases headroom below, looks dramatic etc. etc.
I always wondered if you were influenced at all by the "bin" setup on the Tartan 41 deck.
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.
