Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

Boy Miata, you sure know how to hurt a guy. On Amazon check under "BS". Even if you find the BS book I am willing to bet mine is a lot more fun to read.

Yep, I always pay attention to Out's posts. He's a smart cookie.

I'm 6'3" and 225 lbs.. I don't bend well. It's physically painful me to fold myself up into a coach class seat. I do not charge my...

Re: Best metal sailboat information

I got the same impression from the spec's although I think I recall that name, Treworgy from before. Probably my imagination. I also agree that this does not look like a home builder effort. I can;t...

Re: Best metal sailboat information

I agree Smack. That's a darn good looking steel boat. Too bad they don't list the designer.
Steel is no excuse for crude and lack of design skills.

For the record, this is my "ugly" wife Jill. This pic was taken about 8 years ago but she still looks like this. She always hated this pic because her foot is covered in sand. She is one of the...

Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

I have given the deck stepped/keel stepped question a lot of thought. I have come to this conclusion. If you accept the engineering that each application can be as "strong" as the other, the choice...

Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

Auspicious:
Honestly, now that my office is in my remote beach shack having "interns" at all is a bit logistically awkward. I don't mind a kid or two living here for a week or two but it has to be...

Re: Best metal sailboat information

I had forgotten about the mythical alu 28'er I "designed". For Boiler, this is nonsense. This is BS. This is a "fact" that BS invented to help his story. I have never designed an alu 28'er. This boat...

Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

Thanks a lot Jon but let me adjust that:
In a perfect world more people would BUY it.

Re: Masts - deck or keel stepped?

Both masts can be engineered for their application.
A deck stepped mast has "two pin ends".
A keel stepped mast has "one pin end and one fixed end"

Re: Best metal sailboat information

That black hull is an Alan Payne design I think. That boat has a lot of miles on it. Very nice looking in an old fashioned way. Looks kind of S&S'y to me.
