Joshua was a pretty simple boat but more than a shell with bean bag chairs. Moitessier was a bit of a mad monk and not really a very admirable character. He left a string of abandoned women and children in his wake.

The Pardey's are a much better example to follow than Bernie. They cr@p into a plastic bucket and all the other minimalist touchstones.

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.
