I hate to say this, but... those are interesting boats.

For all the wrong reasons. Ouch.

My bigger fear is that Paulo is cruising his boat in warm weather. From where I sit - i.e., in the freezing cold - that would be cruel and unacceptable.

True.

Probably drinking ridiculously good wine and eating ridiculously good food anchored of some pretty little bay.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I would hope so. I hate to think he would be punishing us.
I can post some some pics of some really awful boats. Do you really want to get me started. Get your vomit bags.

Pouting is so silly.

Except when my 3 year old daughter does it. While still rather silly it is also very very very cute.

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 ...
And a lovely crew you have

Welcome to this thread, even if I am going out.

You have a very nice boat and I wish you and your family a great time with it, racing and cruising.

the best to you all.

Regards

Paulo

Interesting boat thread:

This “hypocrite smarmonizer ass” is given up. This thread is officially under a new management.

I wish good luck to all. It is no more fun for me to post here since the ambiance has changed; I don’t like it, I cannot control it and since fun was the only thing that lead me to maintain this thread I will move elsewhere.

I don’t hold anybody responsible, this is a public forum and this thread was kind of odd, kind of Paulo’s thread, as many have called it, but only because the members of this forum wished and allowed that to be the case.

That changed, the thread ambiance become aggressive to me. I explained the situation to the forum management, previewing correctly what was going to happen and my intention to give up and change my work on this thread (as it was) to a personal blog, if it was not possible to find a solution that restored the cordial ambiance around here. It seems that Andrews had tried but it did not work out. Thank's for your effort.

I am not even complaining about the forum management, it’s their forum but this was an unusual situation on an unusual thread that had over 1500 hits a day and one that was widely appreciated out of sailnet (many become members of sailnet to participate on this thread and many others only followed this thread without being members yet).

It was to the management to decide what they wanted or not for this thread and what they could or could not due to preserve it like it was, knowing that it takes to somebody (in this case me) some knowledge and a lot of work to maintain it like that and running.

A special thanks to the ones that contributed and made this thread with me especially to the ones that tried to maintain it like it was, to those that someone called Paulo’s troops: Erick, Anders and Mr Pelicano that are also among the best contributors. I guess that it was for that they were called my troops. This was their thread too.

I made many friends here and I hope that they will maintain that friendship. If they need something from me they can send me a PM or they will find me on other boat threads were I post occasionally under the name of Polux. I will not be following permanently this thread anymore, or being around much on Sailnet, even if I can post occasionally here from time to time.

A last explanation: The pictures I posted on this forum (and thread) may have an erratic behavior, appearing and disappearing. I use photobucket to post photos. That is a free site providing the photos are not viewed extensively. Mines are, so it is not free anymore for me and even to maintain old pictures I have to pay. As you can understand it does not make sense to pay for something I don’t feel like mine anymore. However as I will use photobucket in the future (on next fall and winter) they will be active then.

You can see some more about all this and the future of this thread, as it was before, here:

Interesting Sailboats

Best regards to all,

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo, I'm sorry you're leaving. Although I don't contribute to this thread I do follow it and enjoy it very much. I hope you'll reconsider and not let a few unpleasant events here ruin this great thread that so many follow with earnest. Não esquenta a cabeça!

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo, I am with you on this one 100% and will follow your new blog with most interest. This thread was a great place to witness development and evolution of modern yachts, big and small. And I prefer my boats just like I prefer my cars - modern European ;-)

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo,
You are a true gentlemen. Few would be able to remain so cordial with the treatment you have received. I will certainly check in on your blog, you are an incredible resource.

I will be cancelling my Sailing Mag subscription as soon as it is expired.

Bom Dia,
Greg

Re: Interesting Sailboats

As one who has read every single page and post of this thread... some pages/posts several times... I can say that I will sorely miss it. I have learned a tremendous amount about yacht design and the latest trends in high performance sailing. I've enjoyed literally hours of exciting and informative video, been directed to all manner of interesting sailing-related sites, and met some very friendly and helpful individuals.

All of my life I've been a racing sailor and I can count on one hand the number of times I've been on a boat when racing/practicing wasn't the exclusive focus. But since discovering this forum, I've become much more interested in and enticed by the idea of actually cruising, more specifically, "performance cruising" - i.e., cruising on boats where I wouldn't have to sacrifice my passion for speed and handling for a few creature comforts like pressurized hot water and a real galley.

Sure, I've raced on performance cruisers like the J/109, Elan 40, Express 37, and Santa Cruz 52, as well as some custom boats, but the idea of actually cruising them never occurred to me until I started spending a lot of time on "Interesting Boats". Now it's all I think about (when I'm not thinking about racing) and I'm pretty sure it's going to be my future passion.

So thanks very much, Paulo, and to everyone else who has contributed so much to this terrific conversation. Sorry it had to end like this, but sometimes it's just time to move on.

Respectfully,

MrP
