These people seem happy with there Brent boat.

Thanks for the link jak.
Nice looking boat.
But see that's just it - I've seen Brent unnecessarily hammered on other forums for the way he works. And I honestly think that's pretty chumpy. I personally like the way he works and see value in it. It's extremely inventive. And I know full well that there is a market of people out there that love his boats and applications very much.
On the other hand, it's when he continuously claims that his designs/applications are superior to conventional marine designs/applications
that the bar is raised...especially in the context of a design discussion such as this. He needs to show
how this is true - just as any other designer must do. Otherwise it's just talk. That's why it's easy for people to jump on him.
So, I have no intention of hammering Brent (although I might not agree with him). But I would very much like to have him illustrate and discuss his ideas (especially in a thread like this where very
knowledgeable designers are holding forth) so I can decide for myself if he's "right" or not. That's just me.
