My first post on this illustrious website.
Am in the research
phase of buying
my first yacht.
Have come across a steely that is quite appealing, although my preference would be GRP It is said to be constructed of Austenitic Alloyed steel
. The very pleasant owner says the material is magnetic, indicating a fair amount of iron, but also contains some copper. Apart from that he has no specification or further idea of the molecular makeup of the material.
Although the boat is 26 old, it quite appealing from many points.
But after Googling around and reading a few confusing scientific papers and graphs etc on steel
composition am still confused as to the pros and cons of Austenitic Alloyed steel.
Does anyone have a layman's explanation that they would care to share.
