I've got a Brewer Murray 33 and (better yet) my Wife has a 44' Alan Pape Steelmaid.

Does that count as a voucher?

I have this line from a movie where the guy says something like "Do you have a voucher?" I cant remember the movie and you can't Google anything with the word "voucher" in it. Maybe the movie is THE JERK with Steve Martin. I'm not sure.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Merry Christmas to all of you and your families. Here's hoping the new year is even better than the last for everyone.

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.

Will take pics of boat as to whom stole it etc........Might have it back......

Bob, francess lee looks great. saw it in the shed today........why is a bow roller on the transom? does the boat go both ways equally?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? or is that for the mantus anchor to slow it down some?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hpeer you are a lucky dog. Beautiful boat. Always like Alan Pap designs. Still have the study plans for a cutter he mailed me years ago. Enjoy her and Boxing Day
