Why Not Steel?—Part III

Chapter 3 of 3 in the Online Book Why Not Steel?

Obviously, Caitlin is a rather special boat, as several of you commented in response to Parts I & II. I put this to Bryan, and he laughed that they hadn’t necessarily intended it to be that way, rather as something that simply got out of hand. His view is that as they knew that the build process was going to take several years, they had the chance to test their own opinions of how all things – engine, installation, rig, etc. – should be done, against those of experienced friends and the best boatbuilders in the yard that he ran. And having asked for those opinions, well, ‘ you’d better follow their advice!’, even if it makes a rod for your own back.
