Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Mark, aesthetics is a difficult thing to debate. You don't like Brent's boats. Fine. You like Bob's boats. Who doesn't? What's not to like? You probably don't find working craft like fishing boats very attractive either. I do. I love boats in general and I like to evaluate every design based on its intended use. I live in a country with an incredible variety of traditional working craft. There are dugout canoes made from the single trunks of the Guapuruvu tree, probably hundreds of different traditional fishing boat designs in wood ranging from small shrimpers and long liners to 150 ft sailing schooners. They are all beautiful to me. All designed with a specific purpose in mind and honed to that task. To me, Brent's boats are similar in concept. They are purpose-built designs for cruising. Some are built to work boat standards and some are more refined.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

It's some HTFU and Vegemite. As for the Veg, I'm actually kind of starting to hate it less.

Damn you Bob Perry!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

In the PNW we have a rich and deep tradition of very beautiful work boats, from tugs to gill netters to log salvage boats and salmon charter boats. Because a boat is a work boat does not mean it can't have a high degree of aesthetic beauty. Bill Garden, Ed Monk Sr. and guys like H.C.Hansen taught us that many times over.

At the Perry Rendezvous last week there was a converted gill netter. I studied that boat, again, I have seen if for several years in the marina. The sheerline is absolutely perfect. I thought about how I agonize over finalizing a sheer and then I thought od the ease and perfection of this workboat sheer probably done as a reflex.

I like to study the aesthetics of work boats. Even the big Foss tractor tugs are very good looking. There are also butt ugly work boats too. I just don't look at them.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Smackers:
Have your boys take Vegemite sammys to school for lunch. They can pass them out to their friends and laugh as the friends throw up.

Reminds me of the time I was at a youth soccer pizza party. One of the young players cruised by my table and picked up a slice of my double anchovie pizza. The look on his face was priceless when he bit into it.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Heh-heh. SmackTheElder had his church youth group friends over to our house this past weekend for a pool party. He made every one of them try it, as well as the parents. We spread it really thin on a triscuit. It was actually pretty well received.

You may have started a trend here in Texas. Of course, Texans and Australians are pretty much the same breed anyway. BBQ and Vegemite. Yeah, baby.
