Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Thanks Jeff. This project has stretched out for over two years. Most of that was due to the class structure at the school. In the end Kim hired four full time boatbuilders to keep working on the boat when the students had off time. So it's been a long wait to see this finished and I'm still waiting. Glad to see CSR on it immedately.

watched a truck being loaded, apparently.
I must bow to your majestic ship building and yacht building experience bljones. I will go now and worship all the vessels you have crafted.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

I think that was an unfair atttack on Mark. He obviously knows steel and working with steel. Everyone mucks in here and contributes what they can. Mark contributed to the discussion.

More of an explanation or rationalization than an apology for sure.

Smack's corrected version of it was MUCH better.

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

Somehow I missed Smacker's version of the apology. I agree with Jon. It's a "I only did it because you,,,," My kids used to try that. Didn't work then either.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Do I detect a genetic or familial resemblance?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Regardless of "resemblances" it seems to have different lines and sure is a pretty boat. Bob please post videos of her underway when available.

Mark, whether you agree with Brent's views or not (or like his boats for that matter), at least give the man some credit for knowing a thing or two about steel boat building. One of the things that drew me to his work was the ability for an amateur builder to get a fair hull (with nice compound curves and a short chine under the waterline) using simple techniques and tools. If you're interested in home-building in metal, it really is worth getting his book or checking out the video on origami building.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Jon:
I know that Garden boat but that was not one of the boats that Kim and I drew inspiration from. But you are correct. There is a resemblance. Especially when you would have us compare the stern of one boat with the bow of the other! That is the SLIVER's bow in that photo. I admit you have to look carefully to tell one end from the other. It was the standard shop floor joke.

Primarily the profile look of the SLIVER is straight from a L. Francis design. The sectional shape especially aft is my own. There is nothing unique about the forward sections or midsection. But aft it is different.

Out:
I think we are at least two months away from sea trials but be certain that there will be lots of photos taken.
