Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I hope you have many more of those kind of projects and clients then.The keel is really impressive. I know you got alot comments about her draft .I was on a pier their in Seattle a few years back. I was looking in the water.It looked about 6' deep then I saw the tide guage board.It was 38', I thought Wow, the water here is clear. and deep!.People I was with told me that was pretty shallow for the area.

Where the keel is and to the right is how close I got the one day to the sliver project. Being as they were sanding the hull, I decided not to get too much closer! Hull looked nice from that distance any how!

Bob, as always, those are nice looking boats. I am sure that they are both going to be very fast, and will sail well. Perhaps Brent will post some shiny hull photos from some of his boats.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

BLJ:
I've worked hard ad long to get it right. My standards are very high. Once and a while I can say, "That's really good." I don't always believe it but I'm sure I am getting close.
I have a few years left to get it really right. I'll keep trying. The trying is the fun part.

I do not relate at all to any designer who thinks he has it all down perfect. I won't mention any names or initials. You might as well sit on the porch and enjoy the perfection. That's not me.

Sit on the porch with their disciples surrounding them basking in the glow of that perfection.Dispensing perfect wisdom about matters large and small, then they come to and shuffle off back to Earth.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I googled 'Brent Swain' and 'Robert Perry' with terms like 'yacht','sailboat' ,'design' and 'cruising'.

The first image that came up for Brent Swain.



The first image that came up for Bob Perry.




The prosecution rests.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I guess this all comes down to the eye of the beholder. I would rather have and FR10 than the BP boat chall showed.......but then again, I have a different taste than others. If it were Icon.....I'd take that too! That looks WAY to cruisy for me.

Here's an origami design by Tad Roberts:



That's starting to look a bit nicer.

PS - this image also showed up in that same search:

Note the reflections in the black hull test. I like shiny boats.
Bob, I assume you also give the owner a rotary polisher and instructions on how to use it (for the Term Of His Natural Life) as a launching-day gift??

That reminds me of a famous quote from another designer, almost as well-known as yourself:
"One day I shall have two boats exactly the same. I shall sail in one and look back at the other to extract the last ounce of pleasure from my labour. And if it happens that I cannot have two lovely boats and become bitter, I shall sail around in the ugliest of boats I can find, looking at everyone else's nice boat, whilst they have to avert their gaze from mine."
I know many people who have taken his advice - but without all your shiny boats for them to look at, it kinda doesn't work...
