Don't you hate it when that happens? Usually happens to me when I see a hot sailor-girl in a bikini.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Gotten old and very married. But in the past ladies preferred no speed but unfortunately lots of dough. Still had too much fun. I'd scare them away now in a speedo.
Wondering about Peterson schooners. Only one I ever got to sail had its engine nearly amidships. Accommodations were fore and aft. Guess power went to prop with jack shaft. ? Is that the way they were all done?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Friend did a beautiful job building in ferro.50' ketch. Unfortunately couldn't get boat insured at a reasonable rate. Boat sat for years. Eventually got sold for cost of materials. New owner doesn't care and sails with just liability.
Given labor is mostly in interior and systems I agree with you Fe makes more sense than ferro. Still think Al makes more sense for most then Fe.
