Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Bob , you are the poster boy for what Andy describes as attacking any suggestion that people don't need a huge amount of money to cruise.
Sure, prostitution to the corporate world pays, $150 an hour I am told, but I am not about to screw anyone out of their cruising dreams ,by spreading disinformation designed to screw them out of their dreams, further padding the over padded nest of the rich. I don't do that kind of "Designing."
Should anyone be ashamed that such elitist "Designing " pisses him off? I'm not!
I enjoy seeing one of my boats launched ,especially by someone who couldn't have afforded it without my help. Far more satisfying.
