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.

Just goes to show how strong BrentBoats are. Ripped your flimsy outdrive right out. The BrentBoat didn't have a scratch once it surfaced and moved to another rock the next day when the towtruck driver came and hitched it back up.

60+ years is impressive, but with all due respect, I notice you don't have steel on your list of past boat materials. So you can't possibly understand the merits of Swaintology.
How's your Brentblock??

I once hit a fire hydrant. However it wasn't hidden, or submerged. It was in fact attached to a marina, well it was attached to the Marina until I hit it with my bow roller, which is luckily made out of stainless steel. Hey why don't more people make boats out of 318?

Either way I guess the story is kind of irrelevant, other than that incident (and my wife repeatedly) did remind me that the best cruising philosophy is to NOT hit things.

I'm getting a little worried. It seems he might be backing out. I don't get it. How could someone turn down over 500% in profit and a chance to prove the naysayers wrong?
