OK, here's another to dismiss... John Neal, with 300,000+ miles in the South Pacific, Caribbean, Patagonia, Antarctica, Atlantic, Scandinavia and the Arctic, has likely seen his fair share of Big Freakin' Sailing...
I'm not ignoring those perspectives at all. I'm just balancing them with the body of other sailors that have also done their share of serious BFS'n, yet prefer the more modern designs...as well as the general industry itself which has moved away from the deep/long/heavy design paradigm.

As PCP says above, today's NAs can't all be stupid.
