Not now, but I built several back in the ''70''s, including a 39'' schooner for myself. I think it is far and away the best possible material for anything over about 35''. In Europe I saw several beautifully built steel craft as small as 25'', mostly from Holland.

Yes,I sail a ''Schelde-Schouw'' 10,50mtr dutch-traditional steel sloop-rigged yacht. On my personal-page on Sailnet you find a photo of it. She is very reliable, also in heavy seas, and rides high waves easily thanks to the long-keel hull-form.
Any more questions I will answer with plaeasure. Klaas
