Generally I also agree, particularly around here BUT...when we chartered in the Caribbean the boat was a French "Ikea" boat - a Harmony 47 - and it was very appropriate for that climate. I don't think I'd prefer a "pirate" or shippy interior in a hot climate.
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.
