Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Thanks for the invitation, Bob, and including us non-Perry boat owners... We have company that weekend, but might try and pull it off sometime. I bet it would be fun.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Wait! That's not right. We will be finishing up a cruise that weekend. Will there be room to drop a hook in the bay and say hello?

Hope to see you there. We get a few non Perry boats each year. Not sure why. Never bothered to ask. It's just a party. Nobody checks design pedigrees. Most people are very happy to show their boats so its a good chance to check other boats out.

I think the opportunity to see FRANCIS LEE up close would be worth the trip.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Just rechecked the schedule.. Northern Century race is that weekend. I'll be sailing with my son this time. Maybe next time!

Yeah.. I was quite confident you would approve.

Maybe I will show up someday on one of your boats. I'd be thinking either a Passport 41 or Amati....

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I don't like companionway hatches like that. Of course they are vbery safe but they are also awkward. You come and o from below all the time. I like a boat that makes it easy. Very interesting boat. Odd looking. Four opening ports is not nearly enough for that boat. I can't see what it's like below the DWL. There is nothing about steel that says the boat has to look weird.
