Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

I too like a light grey hull. I think Awlgrip makes what they call Whisper Grey. That with a dark green bootstripe is what we want as next hull color.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

I was out fishing this morning and saw a very beautiful crab boat. Pretty sure a Garden design, Leclerq build, dark green with a broad gold boot stripe. It was spectacular. I wish I had my camera with me.

Matt and Jessica of the MJSailing blog/vlog MJSailing.com have chosen to leave the aluminium hull of their Trisalu 37 bare above the waterline to develop the natural oxidized patina. They have taken a lot of criticism for it.

Our Thoughts on Going Bare | Matt & Jessica's Sailing Page

They have gone to a great deal of effort and expense to have a bare aluminium hull so they can sail through ice berg fields:

Bought a boat sight-unseen that had been on the hard ten years; spent two years living on it on the stands, while gutting and stripping it to make it their dream boat; They found sections of the hull that were found through x-ray to be thin and they had to pay a welder to cut and weld new pieces of aluminium panels in. They to do a good bit of prep work to get paint to adhere to the hull below the water line.

They were my "neighbors" for almost year while I was at Indiantown! I think they were struck by lightening just before I left in October of 2015. Nice young couple....very dedicated to their boat....glad to see they are sailing!

Yup~ There is something about workboat style boats in dark green with gold trim that just plain seems right. Maybe its the Gloucester Fishing Schooner influence.

They're not sailing yet. They just splashed a week or so ago and still have all their running rigging to route aft. They just had the opportunity to mount their sails and see that they fit. Couldn't do more than spread them out on the ground while they were on the hard. They still have all of their new electronics to install and a sail cover to make.
They hope to motor farther down the river to get closer to the ocean and sea breezes while they finish outfitting.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

I was amusing myself with an idea for a boat I would want for me and my dog if it ever came to that. This boat is highly personal and the antithesis to the modern production boat. It is obviously based on the hull of the carbon cutters. Just me having some fun while I worked with the Italian intern.

You could use the crane to get the dog on deck from the dinghy!

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

I have been reading this thread for 2 days now to cover it up to here. This thread has kept my attention far more than any other I have enjoyed on the many boating forums out there.
Thank you Bob for bringing this production of these vessels to this group and to the others for asking all the questions I would have asked had I just busted into this at the front of the line instead of reading it from the beginning.
Bob, this thread has gotten more attention than any I can recall having been aboard through some years. What is more it will be here for untold numbers into the foreseeable future to enjoy as well. You need have never worried about the numbers attracted to the string, the numbers are astronomical.
Do not expect a LOT of people to chime in or ask questions. This is like the first few days in a new class to many and we simply do not want to wear out the teacher with questions that we might look back on as being stupid later once we learn more. Years of sailing experience is NOT years of nautical engineering and design experience, despite any and all sufferage at the hands of sub par materials and design OR the delights of being on the other end. Most are quite satisfied with being allowed a seat here to view the unfolding of the application of such new materials and technologies onto the open sea and are quite happy to just read and learn and be silent.

Yes and it is building great suspense as well. I can't wait to see the first one hit the water!
