I once saw a boat in BC that used solid fuel. It had not quiet black sails.

With the current cost of oil and all plastics, There is nothing to replace a well designed and executed "STEEL HULL." It will never "rust out" with todays "coatings, and like you, if you were to hit a mostly submerged ship container at 0200 hrs. which boat woud you prefer to be in. Fibreglas boats are a marvel,but whether they are built by Ta Shing, or the other experts, I will take my chances anyday on a well designed and built Steel Yacht

i just read that diesel has 50% more btus than propane by (liquid) volume. so if you have a diesel stove and heater it would last 50% longer between fill ups. for long cruises, that is significant.
