Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

I've been thinking, again.
"The past is the past".
Right.
Some sailors prefer the past. Some prefer the past for aesthtic reaons. Some just prefer the way the older boats sail. Some older boats are very forgiving. For some it's a question of economics, "I'd love a radical 50' cruising boat but all I can afford is this old Pearson." So we own the boats we like and the boats we can afford. We keep our bottoms clean. We maintain our gear and we buy the best sails we can afford, new or used. And, here's the clincher, we all enjoy our boats.

Today I am wearing a green flannel shirt. That's my choice. It's an old man's shirt but hell, I'm an old man and I like it. I'll be your shirt is different. That's fine with me.
