This is something took into consideration as part of the normal design process. I don't guess.

Luca Brenta has been a favorite designer of mine for many years. I love his work. But he has his style and I have mine. I'll just continue doing my style. In can still admire Brenta's work. If my work annoys you then that's not my problem. My style is in no way connected to your taste in yachts. I suspect we eat different food. We wear different clothes. We listen to diferent music. We like different boats. Diversity is a good thing.
Bob, I like many types of yachts including some of yours. Here in what we seem to disagree is in what we call a performance boat and regarding a performance boat concept, being it a racer, a daysailer or a cruiser.

your work does not annoy me. You calling me silly does annoys me.
