>>> Steelcraft and Safticraft

There is often a feeling/opinion that small craft can’t be made from metal, steel especially. Other’s will disagree.

A recent thread on the Bolger mailing list had a good discussion on some factors between steel, aluminum and wood construction. A pointer was given to this site. Its a well done history of some steel boats (runabouts and cabin cruisers) made well back in the last century. Some fine looking boats and an interesting read.
