Great shot of hull speed. Says it all.

Marty is just fine with me. Some of his humor does take some interpriting. But I think some of mine does too.

He hasn't been around for a day or so, but methinks Marty is poking fun at Brent's implied suggestions that steel is tougher than fibreglass because it can survive running into things... without pics to prove it.

Bob, perhaps you need to be at least part-Aussie to get the joke..

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I just did a Google on origami boats and discovered that even other origami builders/promoters are trashing Brent, his claims and his lack of any sort of credentials.

I does seem like his customers like him and his processes though.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Yes I was having a bit of phun with the ferry crashing into FL. Pictures if I can get them posted would show it was a fun phonomonem < dang speel checker will not help me with the word I want....

Was EAST bound on BB ferry to seattle, west bound cam between FL and myself. Fl was there in the pics, then gone, and back up and alive! Yes, would be a fun set of pics...... Heck, the dang ferry took out blakely rock too! and two or three other boats, all were floating back up again a few moments later..........

Kim, are you out racing again tomorrow night? Was on a LATE ferry last week, think the 5:30 or there abouts, usually on the 4:30 or 3:50 if real lucky!

Oh, I do not drink too much or often........unless it is a Dr P! no alchohol, altho a vino, good amber beer is good. Opening day weekend they were giving my vodka shots......do not do well with 4 of them things!

Marty

now if I can get this link to work, my fun the weekend Dave and spouse were doing race to straights....

MedSailor and smackdaddy like this.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hello everyone! I typically wouldn't use some random thread to introduce myself to a forum but I've been lurking on this site for a couple years and reading this particular thread from the beginning for the last couple of days.

Anyway, my plans are to finish up some financial obligations, graduate my last kid from high school in June of 2017, and set sail. Been pretty hungry for it for the last 2-3 years so I'm not 100% certain I'll last 3 more years but that's the goal/plan. In all likelihood, I'll buy a boat in the next 12 months and start doing mini cruises and 3 day weekend trips. Anyway...

I don't know exactly what's transpired on this thread lately as I finally stopped reading about 100 pages ago and just jumped to the end. It's nice to see from the last couple of pages however that this thread is at least consistent with the input, contributing members, and general tone. That's really why I chose to finally register.

I was going to give some observation on tone, ganging up and squaring off, and the impression of general bullying but on second thought, I won't. I'll just say that the vast majority of cruisers I've met (both online and in person) seem like amazing and welcoming people. With that said, I found a lot of the posts in this thread kind of surprising. Not because I'm thin skinned (I'd like to think that with almost a decade of combat experience, I'm anything but soft/delicate) but just because a lot of it seemed kind of cheap, petty, and very personal. -In my honest opinion-

Well, with all that said... hi everyone! I look forward to many more years of lurking and learning on this site as I know I'll probably have very little practical input seeing as how I have very little hands on experience with small cruising sailboats (practically zero compared to present company!)

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I used to be in this thread a LOT because it was the most fun to watch. Bob Perry, SmackDaddy, Marty, and even BS were always here and the discussions were "lively" at times. Looks like no one is home here right now. Bob is probably out building and sailing another gorgeous boat he designed, Smack is likely out sailing with his boys and enjoying the summer. Marty is being Marty somewhere, BS, well he is preaching to his follower (s) somewhere up in Canadian waters. Me, well I am all over the place, working my butt off to be able to be out sailing soon once I find the boat I want, and can afford. I hope everyone is well, and bid you all fair winds and smooth sailing wherever you might be.

Welcome to SN STC. You'll like the place.

And remember, there's one reason and one reason only this thread went the way it did. And cheap and petty pretty much nails the guy.

And hey Mark! Good to see you back 'round.
