Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Building a boat is for people who want to build a boat

That is the most accurate and succinct description of it I've ever seen. It should be required reading for anyone tempted to build or even do a major restoration of a boat.

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

"My favorite photo is of a whole fleet of my boats in Cabo, belonging to people who couldn't afford to be there in such good steel boats, without my help. Your photo couldn't hold a candle to that one ."

OK, where is it?.........Ah ic I am sure there is a very good reason why you would mention it with out ACTUALLY posting it.I guess its one of those Winston heard a guys cousin tell Larry Pardey that Moitessier secretly lusted after your 36'er.Come on Brent, We all know your 'the man' around here.Let your brilliance shine and silence all these detractors and misinformation agents.We are waiting!.There will be much moaning and nashing of teeth I am sure.

Not sure how we are going to get out of there on Saturday since you seem to have the Travelift blocked off.

We'll find a way, and promise to be nice

Well.. OK, Kim... We won't hurt her...

Even though the work on my friend's 1D35 is probably late because they would rather work on your boat.

They are giving us a free coffee mug.. Figure they owe you a couple

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Dragons don't have lifelines, Square Metre boats don't have lifelines, 6 meters don't have lifelines, 8 meters, 12 meters, ACC, etc,etc.

If conditions are such where lifelines were needed we will be wearing our harness.
