I'm going to visit the boat and take a look. What should I watch out for? What are typical steel
Thanks for your input and Merry Christmas!
Sounds like a Sutton Ketch
I've been scoping out in upper Michigan. Steel is a great materiel. It just takes plenty of time to care for. Now there is a new steel made in Japan
called R41 which is seawater corrosion-resistant plate produced by Kawasaki Steel. It's used on exterior hull
and super structure from bilge
up. Doesn't need the annual paint
job, just touches here and there.
