Res:
It's fun chatting with the Wolf.
Wolf and I come from very, very different perspecives on this. This is how I make a living. Fantacy won't work for me. I have to be confident that I can give each client what he imagines is the perfect boat. And, I have to live with the result. I have two boats under construction now, to 60'ers and a third to begin, a 45'er. They are very different boats. They will all have one thing in common, excellant performance as measured by today's standards. No, they won't be AC cats or VOR boats. They will be cruising boats. But I have to keep my performance targets up or I might as well suggest all my clients go buy antiques. I do not have the luxury of discussing this in a philosophical, nebulous way. I have to produce a design, i.e. "cut here".

And there is the difference.
