Re: Interesting Sailboats

The only thing that keeps Paulo - The Font of All Knowledge - off my ignore list is the gorgeous pics of the Med he posts.

Someone posted a while back that they were grateful he had never been their teacher and I couldn't agree more.

From what I have read, the only thing he really understands about yacht design is "If it's newer, it must be better".

And now he's complaining about posts by those more knowledgeable because they're "too snarky"?

It's a good thing he stays off Anarchy - I guess his feeling are just TOO delicate for a place that brutally frank - I doubt he'd last more than a few days.

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.

If one wants incivility, then one can hang out at Sailing Anarchy (as I do, under the same nom-de-Web) and put up with the comments/rants of that site's resident wags / know-it-alls.

Until recently, I've enjoyed this thread for the relative absence of such behavior. Perhaps the current trend towards snarky-ness can be nipped in the bud if the thread is re-named from "Interesting Sailboats" to "Interesting Trends in the Development of Contemporary Performance Sailboat Design". Of course, the orientation of the forum in that direction is explicitly laid out in the very first post, and the meaning further elaborated on in numerous places.

I understand that you're just venting here - or playing second tiny violin to Bob's first tiny violin - but I've seen no evidence whatsoever, anywhere in this 600+ page thread, that your own mastery of yacht design qualifies your assertion regarding Paulo's alleged lack of knowledge of the same. Of course, nothing could be easier and safer than aligning yourself, in this pointless exchange, behind an established NA of Bob's stature, over against an enthusiast of yacht design who spends many hours bringing to our attention the latest developments and trends in the field. Would that Bob took time out from his snarky-ness to contribute as much, which he rarely does, even when asked politely (as I did during the great "chine" controversy - to no effect).

So, as requested previously, can we please get back to interesting boats and start conducting ourselves in a civil manner? Is that too much to ask?

Thanks very much, in advance, for your understanding and consideration.

Re: Jpk 10.10

Hi all ! I'm a long time reader of this forum but this is my first post.

I posted the video on Youtube and I'm happy to see that you enjoyed it ! Just one point, I'm not "a couple" on the boat since I was with my 2 daughters - I was behind the camera ! ;-)

Conditions were great and this is the proof that even if the JPK is obviously a racer (and I will race with her) she is also a great boat to cruise and have fun ...

Impressive vocabulary. Anyone waiting for more?
Otherwise please keep on not posting.

This is meant to be an interesting thread. About sailboats.

I'm sure there must be a thread about a**** somewhere.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Boy, snarkyness is very well distributed here. Brings to mind the word hypocryt.
Rather, hypocriters. Smarmonizers!


I leave for three hours.
I come back and Paulo's troops are still whinging about having their feelings hurt.
" We can be snarky but you can't be snarky."
Not one single post about a boat. Not ONE!
Come on guys, grow a pair.
HTFU.

Let's stop this now and get back to boat talk. No snivelling rules just good honest boat talk.

I'm ready for some boat talk. I look forward to Paulo's next post and I'll do my very best to keep my comments civil and HONEST.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

A gentle hush falls over the land.
About time.
Time for reflection.
I'm reflecting on dinner. I am making my son Spike's very favorite dish. Probably pretty pedestrian for you Euro gastronomes. But Chicken braised in a white sauce was Spike's favoite dinner and I can do it well. Tonight I spring it on my intern.

Out here in elitist New England, I served up a bowl of white bean cassoulet with tempeh and shallot confit for dinner, which I made in the slow cooker Sunday. While the tempeh looks rather disgusting uncooked, once it's been in the slow cooker for 4 hours, with white wine, brown sugar, cider vinegar and sautÚed shallots, it tastes delicious and provides a nice protein substitute for the usual meats that go into a real cassoulet.

Hmmm... well, I guess cassoulet is French, but they'd never accept a vegetarian substitute. Guess you can rack that up to my Northern California heritage. Now for a glass of Godello, from Gališia.

We deal in lead, friend.
