Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Outbound, if I could afford that beauty I could certainly afford the crew to run around on deck while I sipped rum drinks. She does look fast.
Back to the thread, I saw a 20 something foot Channel cutter recently that had been T boned in the bow by a 60 foot sailboat. It only smashed in a couple of inches on deck and would have been fixable ,at sea.The old cutter is cold molded,diagonal decked and all. One of the many talented local wood boat builders had it looking perfect in no time.
