Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I said a similar thing about 4000 posts back - If I was possessed enough to want to sail the North West Passage, a Brentboat would be high on my list.
If one is looking for a utilitarian boat with the ultimate survival aspects as the main goal, his boats are at or near the top and I don't think anyone here has ever disputed that.
It is the messianic zeal that says any other kind of boat is basically stupid, no matter the purpose it is for, that has caused much or most of the friction on this thread.
The same logic applied to cars would be a diesel powered early Land Rover.
Neither of them suit me and my needs.
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.
