Marty: spoke to Kim after the race. He didn't say anything about a collision. But I know Kim and if it had happened he would have.

ICON, my 65'er crushes the Oregon Offshore Race record by 4 hours and 50 minutes averaging 12.9 knots over the 194 mile course and hitting 17 knots tops.

Not bad for a "marina queen".

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Out:
No, but if you come inshore too far you have a lot of crab pots top deal with. It is resally a tough race. The coast of Washington is not So cal. They call it the "Graveyard of the Pacific" and for good reason.

I ma happy my mighty ICON won. Makes me feel alright.

I think Brent must have been flicked. What's up with that?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

In fact three boats broke the 2000 OOR records set by RAGE. Must have been quite a ride.
But there can only be one first to finish.

There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken advantage of at the flood, leads over the reef, on to adventure. Those men who fore go this high water of their life are forever left to ponder, a life bound wallowing in the shallows.......Julius Caesar

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Okay - Brent Swain is pathetic. The guy is despicable. Why? Look at his words from his origami site:

Quote:
Tried to give steel boat information on sailnet, but some wierd old guy named Perry started using the steel boat discussion to post pictures of his personal obsesion, little boys , (which I am sure other old wierdos, who are into little boys appreciate) He was getting disgusting . So I gave up on that site. At least here we stick to steel boat related questions. People with steel boat questions can always can find me here
This little man is a complete coward and a liar. The above post of his proves that completely. Just look through this thread and see if you can find ANYTHING to back up Brent's clear defamation of Bob. How anyone could believe a single word that comes from his mouth is beyond me. Zero honor. Zero integrity.

If this very popular thread does nothing else for the world, let it show that Brent Swain is undoubtedly the biggest con of steel sailboats out there. Hands-down.

You want a steel sailboat? Fine. Are you willing to bet your life on a lowlife like this? If you are, you're an idiot.
