I'd like to see this thread continue as a place where we celebrate diversity in design and the diversity in which we all enjoy sailing. This "right" and "wrong" stuff is tiresome. I'll take a good share of the blame for that climate here. But now maybe we can get it back on track. I will endeavor to behave in the future.
There's a thread on CA called "Cool boats" where we post pics of boats we admire. Then we have discussions about the features of the boats. The boats range from 8' prams to mega yachts. It's fun and educational and there is no end to cool boats out there.
Altho Paulo's stuck thread on the top, is based on NEW boats, his interesting boat thread is still fun to look at when one is thinking about boats of different types, what they are designed for etc.
Reality is, there is no best hull material, as is there is no best hull design per say. Only what may or hopefully is the best for how you are going to use your boat!
