[QUOTE=TheSailBlog;778208]While most of us choose the easy road and pick new boats right off the standard rack, Swedish Jesper Weissglas took the road less traveled and designed and built a boat for the big oceans. He created Journeyman.

Wow - talk about an accomplishment. That guy knew exactly what he wanted / needed, designed exactly that and then did a very nice job of building it. And it didn't take him the majority of his life. That is one impressive fellow.

Any businessmen here who wouldn't hire him, sight unseen?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
