Hey son - welcome to SN dude. It's good to see Brent getting some love from an ex-owner. We were starting to wonder if there were any out there.

Tell us about Pearl Song. Any pics? What would you say the pros and cons are?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

pro is lock the hatch and your bomb proof, hit something, sledge hammer it back into place, the con, you need a hurricane to move it, i live in the gulf islands, and it sucks for wind blankets, ext.. and pearl song had no engine, but a 22 foot ulow, sculling oar

That makes sense. How much did you have to fight corrosion?

And did you build it or buy it used?

Yeah - we've read quite a bit about how much epoxy you need to keep on the boat to prevent corrosion. At the end of that day, it's basically a steel-cored epoxy composite.

That is an extremely apropos comment - Brents boats are indeed the T34 or AK47 of sailboats.

We should all keep in mind that the T34 was the most effective tank of WW II.
