Which is why I tried to be non-aggressive. I'm sure newbies can be trying at times. I just have so many questions. I need to get on a boat and sail then network with as many as possible. I believe the sailing community is going to be for the most part very friendly and helpful. I'm actually getting excited. Anyone want to loan me a 100 grand?

It can be singlehanded although I'd be afraid of that if I got in really bad seas. I'm going to get some crew for awhile and take off. Love the centerboard on it.
i like that boat very much buy it!!!! how much are they asking, do you have a link to glossy pic, the broker, I,m like see the interior clearly
A copper penny, that will do it alright( electrolysis referred to)

He wants over 200K for it which is really acceptable IMO. My problem is its a home built albeit a professional alum worker/owner of a successful alum business. Maximum overkill for the boat. Heavy heavy rigging, Southern Ocean racing mast, yada. I'll see if I can find pics. That's why I asked someone to loan me 100K.

I'm afraid I'll have to consider something more modest the first time at least until I win the lottery.

BTW, the penny thing just shows how careful you need to be with your vessel. And is a big neg regarding aluminum boats. I wonder if the hull had been completely insulated would that penny have affected the hull??

yes insulation could have been achieved IF the penny dropped(no pun) upon a piece of rubber
May i suggest you study , electrolysis, and the galvonic table
The exact same thing could have happened with a mild steel or high ten steel hull

I can always use study. But any two different metals will generate a field. It just matters how much how often thru what. But I definitely don't know it all and no book is going to teach you everything. That vessel has a lot of proper insulation when two metals are nearly touching. Just wasn't penny proof.

The following is the galvanic series (from Wikipedia) for stagnant (that is, low oxygen content) seawater. The order may change in different environments. Galvanic series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaCorrosion can occur in the relative absence of two differing metals albeit generally very slowly.

Are you talking about Ted Turner's Lightnin' ? Built in 1971, and raced by Turner in the Admirals cup.
My Wife and her ex bought that boat and raced it a while, before converting it for cruising.
The boat sailed really well, and loved beating to windward in strong winds. It really moved along in light winds also.
We sold it about 5 years ago.
My favorite part of the boat was the Titanium 3 speed winches!

Hey, one Ted is as good as another. As soon as I started reading the copy of my post in your post recogized I had the wrong Ted. If it was Hood, the boat would've been named Robin, painted light blue and designed by him.
