I am more than happy to answer pertinent questions, sadly so rare in this discussion. Thanks for asking a pertinent question, to enable me to respond in kind.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent, I believe you have finally given a new meaning to the word insane. I am going to call it " inswain ". Inswainity results from having to reread your reposts that any sane individual would never had posted in the first place. Please go back to passing gas and listening to traffic reports on the radio.

I certainly wouldn't want any woman aboard, who is so desperate as to have to settle for the company of a guy like Smack!

Couldn't find your response. Is she strip planked, carvel or cold molded? What with? What kind of framing?

Sorry for speaking so high over your head. I'm used to dealing with people who can grasp such basic concepts.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent:
You live in your own world of dumpster diving and meat preserved in cooking oil. I think it's great. I do not want to do it. I like nice things and I have worked hard enough to afford them. It's called being an individual. And you know what? I have loved my job. I have loved working hard at it. I have loved the results.

So while you whine on in your angry at everyone mode, consider this: Not everyone has the same set of values that you have. That's wonderful. Not everyone has the same set of values I have either. But I don't trash people who prefer a different approach. To each his own. If you don't like what I like you are not stupid. You are just different.

For some salt in the gaping wound. Don't you wish you could produce a thing of beauty like this?

Not in your wildest dreams.

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

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

"Inswain"?

That is very funny.

Brent the boat is a true composite with everything in it from red cedar strip planked hull, no framing, to a grp and foam deck to carbon details, all cored interior, no plywood, to a steel keel floor system. You name it we have it. It kind of defines "composite". This is truly not a dumpster diver's boat.

Come on down Brent. I'll take you through the boat. I'll even take you sailing. But I'm pretty certain that you do not want a face to face meeting with me.

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

Not likely!
CPP and OAS contributions go to Duffy and Ford?

Interesting.

How does that work exactly? How do they get their hands on CPP contributions? (that I have actually made all my adult life, so yes, I certainly won't turn it down)

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.

Okay - I'm sorry - that's funny...well, only if you're not a member of the Church of Swaintology.

I don't think I'm as impressed as you Smack - I see at LEAST a 3' line coming off the stern.
