Thanks jak. Yep, that's it. You can just barely make out the bubble between the forks.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I missed the beginning of this thread, but thought I'd add an interesting perspective that Ted Brewer provided for my blog. Of particular note, Ted disucsses the creation of a radius chine from metal. You can read it here: The Metal Yacth - Aluminum & Steel Sailboat Perspectives

I've seen some of Ted's radius chine boats. They are a huge improvement over a hard chine and I believe, or understand that they provide a method for a relatively unskilled person to produce a round hull.

At least when they are on the hard, it IS still possible to recognize them as largely flat panel construction though. In the water, not so much.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I used radiused chines for my alu Norseman. It took a pretty well honed eye to tell it wasn't round bilge. But I used two chines per side.

Slightly off topic, no actually way off topic but WTF. The 63' SLIVER Project left the building today to be trucked to the CSR yard in Seattle where it will be painted, keel put on finished and rigged. It was fun to be able to step back and see the boat from a distance. Obviolsy I am biased but I think it is a spectacular looking boat.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

The keel fin is steel as is the floor structure that spreads out the keel and mast step loads. Launch should be in two months, or so. Yard says one to two months. We'll see.

This first pic was taken right after I told my client Kim the outstanding balance on the design fee.
The last pic is me and Ruby. She maintains my sanity and sense of modesty. Not sure she is very good at either job but I love her anyway.
