Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Once hit a car- yes a car- floating half submersed in a Tayana 37 coming back from Hamilton. Things that go bump in the night. No damage. Kinda takes some of the wind out of BS sails. Agree rubbing on a reef the mohls number (? Do I have the right scale) for Fe is better but in the real world is this a significant issue.
Sorry, but I just can't resist - how did a car get half submerged in a Tayana 37?
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
