Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent,

You never commented on this: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Quote:
Facts:
1. GRP boats are cheaper (as you admitted in this thread previously)
2. Even with a steel boat a grounding may kill you, so learn to navigate (although you refuse to believe the evidence)
3. An overly heavy hull that doesn't point well may not be able to beat of a lee shore and/or into a safe haven (no matter the material)
4. Steel is a great material for boatbuilding, and so is wood and GRP
5. The Pardeys have survived in wooden boats for soooo many years.
6. The test to destructions made by NASA are scientific and empirical, not just bad navigators running aground.
7. Fram was made of wood.
And to keep slightly on topic for where this thread is currently headed
8. Marmite is preferable to Vegemite
9. Steel is a great material for BBQ's

Check. The GRP BBQs leave this really weird aftertaste in the chops.

Steel is much harder to chew.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Yeah, but if you run your steel BBQ onto the rocks it can survive for weeks.

And for the record, Marmite is for pansies.

All those GRP gas bottles have been recalled. Better you stick to steel.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

You know, there are times when I am out there BBQ'ing and things aren't going as planned. I have a burn going on some pieces and other pieces of meat just don't seem to be cooking at all. It's damn fusterating!

It's times like those I like to pull out my .45 and shoot my BBQ. The bullets just bounce off and fly in all directions but tomorrow,,,I'll be good to BBQ again. Who knows, maybe I'll get it right this time. Maybe not and I'll have to shoot the BBQ again. But I know that my BBQ can take a good shooting and live to tell the tale.

Bob,

I have a grill made from 24" pipeline pipe with a 2 7/8" inch wall on it, the grill itself is some really heavy diamond grill from some catwalk or something, and it is, oddly enough, the most even cooking grill I have ever owned. It takes about three hours to cool down after you put the fire out though LOL. I have mesquite, oak, hickory, and pecan wood that I burn in it, you get the mix just right and it is great for steaks or ribs or anything else.... and now I am hungry.

As for the vegemite, I have only ever tasted it once, and barely that, and that was enough to know it was not Jif and not Smuckers and did not belong on a sandwich. I think if you ground up Bob's anchovy pizza, mixed in some of the stuff that collects up in the creases under the blades of your garbage disposal you would have something that might still be better than vegemite. Of course I am not sure that this is not the actual recipe for vegemite.

I like anchovy pizza, not everyone does, but hey I also like a supreme pizza with pineapple chunks on it, and not everyone likes that either.
