Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

How can one claim "engineering principles" in one post and then make this statement in another? The entire profession of engineering requires accurate and reliable calculations of all aspects of...

Re: Dudley Dix / Didi 26

I self taught myself how to read and do tables of offsets from boat plans. It's something avoided by many but it really does give a person some ability to "play" with a design after the station molds...

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

When I was 20 years old I needed a day job to augment what I made as a musician. I walked into Jay Benford's office one morning at 10:30, showed him my drawings and he said, "Can you start after...

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

Thomas,

I am not Mr. Perry, and frankly, as much as I hate to admit this, I don't do all that well at concise answers. Hopefully, I can at least try to answer your questions in a logical manner. ...

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

Let's explore this one a bit, Brent. You always say that one should be able to have a hull together in just a few days (you claim you can do it in a couple). Here are 2 case-studies from the yahoos...

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

So, Brent, less than about 0.0000001 %'of grp boats and 0.00001% of steel pleasure boats. That's three plus decades of production for you. You rant all these thousands upon thousands of intelligent...

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

Just got this nice email from Carol Hasse of Port Townsend Sails. Carol is a sailor's sailor and a world class sail maker. She truly knows boats and is an old friend of mine.

Dear Bob,
Thank you...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I think that Christian Hess's post# 4991 rightly gets to the heart of a bigger matter, namely the whole nebulous issue of defining what is an ocean going vessel, distance cruiser- and/or cruiser for...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

When I designed FRANCIS I had in mind a nice, all round, good mannered vessel that would perform well in all conditions. If I had thought that in our typical tide rip/chop there would have been some...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

As one of the other participants on bd.net, I'd have to say I'm more amused than anything else.

One of the things I've had a wonderful laugh about at Brent's expense is his utterly ludicrous claim...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Sad to see so much downright dishonesty. Hard to imagine that someone could expect that it would go unnoticed. And all about info that's on public record which is a bit dumb.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

For 13k app wind with that angle and speed the true wind speed is about 8.5k. At that wind angle and conditions my boat (and 40 ft performance boats in general) would be doing 7.0K or maybe a bit...

But Brent, Smack didn't actually say anything. He collated everything you said.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I joined this thread just a couple weeks ago, so I was not aware that Brent attacked Bob's wife. That pretty much says it all for me about Brent.

I personally know Bob's wife very well, she is a...

I was in Kolding port last weekend and saw it live. She looked much fatter than all other Luffe boats may be because she she has very small wetted surface with high boards to gain good standing...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

"My boats have no problem pointing higher and sailing faster than many GRP boats."

What a silly thing to say.

I'd like a little more specificity on this. But if it came from BS I think it...

I do own a Mac 36 in the Florida Keys, and, unlike most other owners, actually spend a portion of every year living aboard. It is minimalist living, but in fair tropical weather I do spend most of my...

Re: Questions about standoff distance and narrow channels

I find that statements, such as the ones you have made above, are much more impressive and useful as teaching tools when they are properly cited.

Post Note:
Shortly I got home. I heard from the news that tropical storm Floosie is on its way to Hilo. I guess Jake and I save the boat and her owners. :)
