Re: How not to get wet

That's one reason the way we learnt to do it as kids (no matter what type of dinghy) was:

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

We could easily double the tankage on FRANCIS. There is lots of vacant volume in the boat. We don't need to weld a vice to the deck. There is not much need for welding on Frankie.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Storage, tankage, and the ability to crush rocks and punch holes in shipping containers, trawlers, etc. Additionally you can't easily set up a forge on the deck or weld a vice to it.

Re: cost to seal through hulls and install a new backing plate

If I were you, I would use bronze pipe plugs on the thru hulls you do not intend to use and close the valves. You will seriously devalue the boat by removing them.
