Yes, the SUPER threads...

What anchor should I buy?

Crimping vs soldering.

And the funniest of all

Cruising with bulldogs. (My favorite)

224

This is the internet, not an English class fer chrissake!

But getting back to the topic the boats that are built are the ones people buy. If these features were that bad they wouldn't sell.

What I have always found odd is the opinion of many that for a boat to be "offshore capable" it must have a long keel, attached rudder, and if it behaves like a half tide rock so much the better it seems.

On the thread started by Paulo - interesting sailboats - virtually all the boats described could and in some cases have been sailed offshore for a fair distance. Many are what cruisers would call either racers or racer/cruisers with a definite emphasis on the racing part.
