Re: Paradigm changing boats
Great boats.Can anyone think of the boats that changed the thinking engineering wise. ?first synthetic cored hull, first rigid sail, , etc.?
A Vancouver built boat - Porpoise, a one off Discovery 47, was reputed to be the first Airex cored hull in the late 60's. Pic attached of it sailing locally.

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.
