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...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

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.

Re: Ganbare & Gumboots (Doug Peterson)

Remember, we are talking about GANBARE and that was 1973/74. I was 28 years old and I think Doug and I are the same age.

I don't know who that is aimed at, but speaking for myself, I truly love that ‘Dorade’ was able to pull this off. In fact, I really love it when any of these...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Smack,

A few days ago, you asked whether anyone on this thread had ever considered building a steel boat. I had relatively seriously. There was a time in my life when I almost always had ideas in...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Okay - all debating aside...that was a seriously douchey thing to say, Brent. You're messing with family. Sailors don't do that. Ever.

You owe Bob an apology.
