Re: Anchor Wars
What's it made of? Why are they bolting the component pieces together? Not sure I'd want to trust my boat to a bunch of nuts! (No pun intended).
That was thoroughly discussed a while back. The ability to break it down and store it flat can be a big advantage to many.
Bridges and airplanes are bolted together.
I agree that at first glance, a one piece forging intuitively seems stronger but it really isn't so.
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.
