Unfortunately steel itself (just like kevlar and anything else) is no panacea against sinking. I interviewed a doctor I worked with who's steel boat sunk 3 days Easy of Hawaii after a collision with some unknown object. He even had an engine driven bilge pump, but to no avail, and the boat went down.

Steel can break up and sink too.

Naa - bluto's not a troll. He's been around here a long time. Good dude. Just got mixed up I suppose. Of course, how in the hell can you mistake ANY boat out there for the FL?

Have to wait for the pictures. Blutowski, Built To Ski. Rookie mistake on my part.

Bluto?
He has a weird sense of humor, works long, hard hours and I think he may take a nip before posting (gasp!). But I know him and he's the real deal, a sailor's sailor.

I like to take a nip before posting too. And being right at 13K posts, I've now been through 1,278 gallons of scotch.

To another post!

Frankie trucking along to another effortless win.

We were just finishing the hoist when this photo was taken. Yes, we did get the chute to the masthead.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Congratulations, Bob and Kim..

Sorry about Marty. Sometimes he gets a bit silly. Yes, he does work very hard, but he does look out for my boat, so it's all good.

I will take another opportunity to brag about my family:
 photo 52910857-7147_zpsd91f94f3.jpg

 photo 52910856-77151_zps7232aa6e.jpg

These pictures were taken during the Race to the Straits last weekend. We finished in the middle of the pack on Saturday, and bailed on the race Sunday, which had quite a bit of carnage involved.

It's a double-handed race, and my wife's second race... About 10 minutes after those pictures were taken, I was asking my wife to release the spinnaker sheet, which was underwater at the time.

A brave and forgiving woman!


P.S.... Is the second photo a good example of hull speed?
