Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Thanks. High light of the day was seeing a Peterson schooner go by. Know it's not a great performing rig but when one that's well proportioned like yours is on a reach just got to move you.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Re: Max wind

Think all his technology is great as long as there is a fallback so you can safely run the boat when those systems fail. Personally don't think the Dock and Go should be a deal breaker. This is...

Re: Malo 45' loses rudder, pulls an All is Lost

Don't know the sea state in this scenario. Sailing in 8-10' with 25-35kts. is what this boat is made for. Malo, although now defunct, has an excellent rep. There is not unlikely another piece to this...
