Good Gawd, the OP was a 2006 post.
Can't the admin lock a post that hasn't been added to for several (6 years).
Why should they?
I just looked at the boat, and searched the forum for information. Since Coronado 32's were only produced for two years in the 70's they certainly haven't changed in 6 years. So the points made in this thread are still valid for anyone interested in the boat. Should I have started a new thread on the same subject, thereby reinventing the wheel (as many do, without even searching the subject to see if it has been discussed)?
From this old thread, I learned that some people think the boat is crap, others hold it in high regard, and some think it has a iron keel, which (if true) would be a deal killer for me! I provided evidence that it might not be the case, something I could not have done had the thread been "locked".
Given the quote from Lincoln you cite at the bottom of your posts, I find it particularly ironic that you, of all people, should raise this issue!
One more question. Why would you even open a thread you apparently had no interest in, regardless of it's date?
