But, I now love my steel boat, now that four years later I've almost got all signs of rust out of her and hopefully this year going to give it a really good paint job (I hope). So, all the science aside, just looking at the antedotal evidence, Steel is a good tough cheap product that will give most people a really good cruising boat with safety for many many years, as long as you maintain it.
Ultimate strength *is* something that can trump everything else in an impact, if it's high enough. Composites' non-homogeneity is something to be taken advantage of - it means parts can be laid up with less strength in directions that don't need it, saving even more weight. For impact strength, local ductility is more important than simply the strength of the whole, as Jack Verschuur pointed out.
High strength can take the place of ductility in toughness, but ductility can't replace the structural integrity that strength gives.
An eggshell is tremendously strong due to its shape but once that integrity is compromised the system fails. I hope you aren't suggesting the differences between eggshells and skin are similar to those of FRPs and steel.
Certainly, but if it were the same mass as a steel bow, the force required to bend it would be far beyond what was required to break the steel bow.
Composites on the other hand are fully elastic, with virtually no plastic zone - they never deform permanently, until they break. For what it's worth, if I were to have a custom boat built today, it would be out of steel with out a doubt. Research the number of owners that first had a steel boat and cruised for a few years then upgraded to another steel boat. Regarding FRP damage from collision, here's a link to a racing collision in which the visible damage appears minimal after initial impact. Where do you get support for your last comment 'the cruising world is littered with former ferro, steel and alloy owners that have said never again' ???

Steel's homogenous structure and indefinite fatigue characteristics at low yet constant strains are in contrast to frp's nature. Cumulative damage wouldn't limit the life of the whole item as long as the use stays within design limits.
There's some pretty foul stuff there that has nothing to do with boating and is guaranteed to worsen your day, but I couldn't find the video anywhere else of this quality.

For this aluminium performance cruiser Maxwell has received the order for a twin VWC6000 installation.
For over 40 years the name Maxwell has been synonymous with high quality anchor systems for pleasure boats, super yachts and commercial vessels. By providing superior anchoring solutions for pleasure boats, super yachts and commercial vessels, Maxwell has earned a global reputation for quality without compromise. We have crewed charter boats in the favourite yachting hotspots in the Mediterranean and Caribbean as well as worldwide locations. But pure antedotal evidence in this neck of the woods (below 40 degrees) clearly indicates that metal boats take a battering that glass boats don't.
It might be stronger than steel and lighter, but I'm personally not convinced it takes the impacts that steel do. The main thing with buying used steel boats is to ensure it's cancer is not beyond repairing for a sensible price and then look after it.

It takes an incredible amount of punishment to puncture a steel hull, is it really likely that some FRP would withstand the same treatment and still be watertight? Those a pretty rare, compared to other impacts which are much more frequent, such as connecting with docks, dinghies and raft-ups.
Human skin is amazingly difficult to penetrate because it gives, and returns to its original configuration; better than steel, and it is a composite. She offers accommodation for 8 guests in 4 double staterooms and a large deck saloon as well as a proper wheelhouse, which is quite a unique feature for a sailing yacht of this size.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
The Inoui superyacht’s carbon hull as well as superstructure will arrive at the yard in May 2012.
Including chainstoppers, remotely operated band brakes and stainless steel base plates for the entire windlass arrangements. The programme of windlasses, capstans and accessories is extensive and offers optimal anchoring solutions for boats from 6-90 metres. We have lots down here breaking moorings, running aground, getting hit by other boats and just about everyone survives. Maintenance Steel is a great boat for those of us inexperienced or not as delicate as some.
My fibreglass bow is flexible over its length, but a low radius bend will locally overstress the fibres in it and it will explode. There are geographical exceptions such as high latitude adrenaline junkies who are willing to put up with the maintenance required by steel and the careful electrolysis controls required of alloy.
With their own cockpit in the fore deck, the crew is completely separated from the guest area. Maxwell received the order for a completely customized below deck, submarine type windlass system.
And the only reason I avoided them was because I couldn't seem to find anyone that would provide insurance for one.
But everytime we have a glass boat run aground, break a mooring, get hit by another boat, we also hear of it sinking or being scuttled. And frankly to answer the OP's question, I'd rather hit a whale in a steel boat than a glass one without any doubt what so ever.
At the time I didn't know about Aluminium sail boats and probably couldn't afford it anyway.
