You mean BS like the BS Bob Perry gave us, when he promised to post the pattern for his origami dinghy. No sign of it yet.
Must have been Bob Perry BS.

No shortage of that here.

To which his father replied "No thanks son. Hearing them makes me feel young. Seeing them makes me feel old."

I think he's been busy.

The Domesday book didn't include any continental tribes.

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.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Wrong again BS. In fact I did post the pattern for one of the first row boat models. You can go back and find it if it's that important to you.

You are just an angry little man BS.

Here is some more pics of Frankie. This should make you really angry.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Beautiful - I understand the evolution of " modern" vessels has been toward the " slice of pie" shape whereas the sliver is a sliver which should fly upwind. Some how the sliver shape looks more organic and pleasing to my eye. ? Does physics allow some compromise or is it the inevitable future that the future offerings of the production builders with be those industrial shapes. The HRs,Morris 's, recently defunct najads remain appealing but am I alone in thinking the angular current boats with lights in the hull instead of just the house look like industrial design?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Ironically I am doing my SAILING magazine reviews this weekend and I am addressing that exact issue. I have three boats to review, 35.5' LOA, 41'LOA and 51'LOA. I am trying to track the trends and ideas the three boats most asuredly have in common. You can argue as Paulo does that they don't look alike but in fact they almost, all three, look like they came from the same builder. Performance is dumbed down, and volume is maximized. Interiors are oriented around numbers of berths and lockers are dissapearing. I have been watching this happen for a few years. Don't tell me these big, fat assed sterns are fast in moderate and light air. They may provide huge cockpits and big quarter berths but they also provide a large amount of wetted surface. But unfortuinately among the current Euro builders this is the preferred type.

Amen to that!

So it was soap you sent Brent for Christmas? Has he thanked you for it? Next year, send it to me and I'll return the favour with a nice box of Brazilian cigars!

Please keep posting pictures of Silver. She's a beauty!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

It was an interesting kind of shampoo. Seems to be ideal for liveaboards. How did you like the shampoo, Brent?
