Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

So I've read this post through, and it seemed to start out well. It covered steel vs fiberflass, and eventually looped in aluminum. Even titanium was mentioned.

Then it devolved into a...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Wait, are we still talking boats? Cuz, that's what I was referring to. Don't tell me you're changing the subject like BS. That's too predictable.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

This could be said of just about every custom boat builder out there.

Many designs get built just a few times.

Few designs get built many times.

This is a great story, funny on the outside but heartwarming on the inside. I'm glad it turned out well for everyone despite the misunderstanding.

Re: Boat Insurance Nuances - do I have it wrong?

Would this be liability only at a minimum?

Also, for liability only, is it typically an exorbitant amount? A few thousand a year? or more than 10k per year for a 20 yr old sub-40 foot boat....? ...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

I'd hate to generalize this to all 'kids', which in this forum could easily be anyone younger than 35. There are certainly a lot of great young people out there to prove us wrong. I could post the...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

I think you touched on one of the keys to this question. There are those kids who prefer to play outside with sticks and rocks, build forts, swing from trees... those are potential future sailors. ...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

I think it's charming how you try to bridge a generational gap with the chart plotter. But ultimately let's face it, sailing is boring compared to other stuff a young kid could be doing. I think...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

That's a great story, I love that you see potential in those older boats. I'm the same way, and it's great to get out on the water. I have an O'Day 20, and I'm seeing that I'll be working my way up...

Re: Nonsuch 36 - What's the scoop?

Thanks jak3b,

Do you think they'd make good bluewater cruising boats?

Any resources online that you know of that can speak to that?

Thanks!

Lightbulb Nonsuch 36 - What's the scoop?

I've recently come across a review of the Nonsuch 30- which seems nice but small for me. Come to find out, they made a 36, which appears to be perfectly sized. I'm not familiar with this boat and...
