Re: Steel Boats

It's sabredancing

It's at the bottom of his post.

I've met SabreKai in real life. We speak the same language when it comes to a preference for steel and he's taken on a bigger renovation than I have. I considered buying his boat when I was only looking at the outside.

Can't sleep? Read for fast relief. Can't read? Avoid, because it's just personal reviews of sea books.

Re: Steel Boats

Thanks Marc!

Marc and I are pretty close as far as locale goes, so I've been down to see Alchemy. Marc, You gotta get some time this summer and come have a boo. Although I gotta say, the blog is pretty good at explaining the joy of gutting a 38 foot boat. At least I'm done gutting for now and moving back into fixing things. I expect to be launching soon with a gutted cabin but I'll be afloat again.

Re: Steel Boats

Many years ago we were sailing back from bermuda heading to Norfolk. We were in a Nor easter that swept a large "propane" tank like object that was about 40 ft in length off of a Navy ship. We hit it at night, it rose up and came across the deck taking out stantions along the way. Oh yea we were on a 43 ft steel ketch doing about 7 knots. In November!! Still here to talk about it!! Presently doing a major refit on the boat because I cant give her up.
