At least I know both. It seems that at least I am a bit more informed than you

How am I disparaging you or your friends? Just because I justifiably disagree with your opinions, namely about size and safety in boat?

I ask apology if I mistook your words.

I see sailing across the ocean in an open beach cat as a "stunt". In the same category as taking an inflatable across the ocean. It's not cruising as I see it. You are correct, I do not know the guy who sailed the beach cat. BUT, that is a FAR different than the cruising Larry has accomplished during his life.

I see the open 60s and the last Americas Cup boats as racers, and not cruising boats and not even close to what any of us will be using. Jill and I met with Gary Jobson at the Oakland Yacht Club not long before the races. When asked what technology/parts he thought would trickle down to our cruising boats, he thought for a bit and said, "Maybe some of the radio tec, but nothing else."
