Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent, why do you continually make statements like the above? You have one way of designing boats based on ideas that you think important. Bob designs boats based on ideas that he thinks important,...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Maybe, just maybe, people are underestimating Brent Swain. He probably truly believes most of what he says, even when it flies in the face of more knowledgeable people. But why would he come back...

Re: The Benefits of Bottom Feeding

Your assumption that bigger boats don't get used because of more down time for maintenance because they are big, and because people are working to pay for the boat may not be correct. A bigger boat...

Re: The Benefits of Bottom Feeding

In general, I agree with BJ's original post, although I have always opted for new. Generally, one has a certain amount of money to allocate to this hobby, so if you go new, it's smaller and has...

Re: How many sailors actually know how to sail?

So what? If they're happy with it and it gets them where they want to go, that's all that is needed. For many, sailing is about relaxation from normal day stresses....you know, rules, regulations,...

Re: Is sailing intuitive?

Since you already have the B352, use that and forget about the dinghy for now (unless you don't mind spending more just now, in which case, go for it). They are different boats and on different...

Re: Ugly Side of Liveaboards: Sailboat vs. Doublewide or Homeless Shelter

Pearson 796,

So the family is a "tea party" nut job. Not just a nut job, but one of those "tea party" people. Aren't you making exactly the kind of assumption that you accuse others of doing?...

Experts, Hero's, and Screw-ups

Do we allow ourselves to be hustled by "screw-ups" by giving them "Expert" or "Hero" status that they don't deserve? Just a thought, maybe we should take more care in whose advice and expertise that...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

Doug,

No one has suggested that we should not help people who are in trouble, especially, if it's truly something that's not their fault. But there is today, not just in boating, but across the...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

Just a couple of thoughts:

Re: need help and advice -mid cruise keel crack

Hope that your problem is as simple as replacing filler.

Re: need help and advice -mid cruise keel crack

Having looked at the video, I too think something more than crack filler, being old, just crumbled away. If that had been the case, it most likely would have fallen away in an irregular fashion in...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent,

I suspect most of your design drawings were done before computer aided design was available (or in common use). Much, if not most, design work today is done on the computer. Also, while...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent,

Most of your designs seem to have been designed a long time ago, but seem to attract some people still. I can understand to a degree that you concentrate only on the Origami approach, and...

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

Another of the things, for many of us, that makes the price of new boats seem so high is that our incomes have not kept pace with the price of new goods. Numerically, I make more than I did 13 years...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

How about it? A designer who takes strong positions but won't reveal a little about his background .....well, what is one to make of that? Adds confidence in what he says?
