Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
[QUOTE=bobperry;1362873]So you have 11 ugly boats, visual blights on the environment. I wouldn't say that was an advantage. If I lived on that bay and had to look at those droopy piles of rust I'd be pissed.
11 is one more than Smack gives for the total number on the planet, in a small area ,for boats which have fanned out across the planet. Where does that leave Smack's credibility?
Your Comox friend can confirm that a picture of one of my 36 footers was put on lamp posts across Comox to beautify the town, for several years. They have also shown up on postcards here . Seems your opinion is a tiny minority one.
I have never seen a town do that with a Perry design.
