Re: Keel bolt torque

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I read his price comments as follows;

The $17K was a somewhat recent cost while the $7K was intended to show that his method cost about 1/3 of a commercial operation, albeit back in the day - not...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

This boat looks like it might actually fulfill Brent's claims for someone. Appears it could be bought for under $20K.

Looks like a workmanlike build and it doesn't get much cheaper for an...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I think I've found the girl for Brent. Won't work, unsocial, unconcerned with esthetics or style, likes unusual colours, even comes with some of her own steel. ;):D

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I don't think the difference is so much Euro/North American as it is Radical/Conservative.

Some of the Scandinavian boats are pretty conservative - I can't see Hallberg Rassy's being classified as...

Re: ATN Tacker experiences???
