I can tell you there was no lack of effort on our part collectively to attempt to settle the situation down. You'd be staggered to know the sheer volume of PMs involved in the background throughout this debacle.

All for naught, in the end, but the effort was there.

Sorry, meant "effort" on an ongoing basis - i.e., as in "you gotta keep 'em separated." I was aware that a considerable amount of effort went into trying to resolve the problem, prior to the final implosion. Didn't mean to diminish that. I tried a bit of behind-the-scenes mediation as well.

Ultimately just need to keep things in perspective, as most seem to be doing.

Regards,

MrP

What he said.

I will go a step further, that you can't shake hands, that there is now continuing "see everyone look why I was right and he was wrong" crap diminishes the greatness of the contribution.

Paulo you remind me of a former Sailnet member. He was also a valuable, vital contributor with a personality to match. He also left here in a blaze of glory and burn't the curtains on the way out the door, proclaiming how worse off we would all be. It was also all because of what was essentially petty playground bickering.

Well he really showed us. Most people here would of never heard of him now.

Paulo, can't we just let it go and talk boats???

Hi chall!

You are mistaken. I did not left sailnet, I bet i am still posting more than most I like most people here including you and that's the only reason I am replying.

I simply stop posting on a given thread that is what all do at a given time. In Portugal we have a say that translated will give something like this: "If you are not well, move to another place" and that's what I have done just regarding my participation on this thread. Fact is that I was feeling pissed and had enough of it. No drama, no melodramatics no blaze of glory no nothing. I just fell more comfortable and happy doing what I was doing on this thread on another place. It was no fun here anymore for me the way things were going, that's all. My problem. Carry on with the thread.

Regards

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

OPC:
Glad you missed me. But I'm still here. I've been in NC for a week working on the new PSC 63' ketch project. I got home last night. Sorry Paulo's knickers are still in a twist but that's his deal. I'm good as gold. I check the thread daily and if I feel I need to chime in on anything you guys know I will. I do fault the moderators for not clearing some of this up. But they are protecting their own fannies. But given that Paulo is intimidated by me I'll stay quiet and let him do what he does well. When I need a good debate I'll go to SA.

We sail the 62' SLIVER Project boat this weekend. Maybe I'll post some pics of that. They have given us a temporary PHRF rating of -7 with spin. I was hoping for -03 but I can live with -7. Tomorrow is supposed to be the day.

The PSC project is going very well. We have new potential buyers interested but for now our focus is getting hull number one out the door. Spent time working out deck gear layouts, interior fine tuning, electrical system design and a variety of odds and ends it takes to build a real boat. There are lots of decisions to be made. I enjoy my time in the boat yard. Hands on is always rewarding.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo- please accept the steel boat thread is a different thing. There you have someone with some limited practical knowledge but who is making absurd statements that potentially could do others harm. The thread is trying to tease out of him his practical knowledge without letting his absurd statements go unchallenged. Here you have knowledgeable people with differences of informed opinions. There is a communality of purpose here- to discuss new boats. Please don't let ego -either yours or others get in the way of that purpose. I lurk on this thread but post very rarely. I discount some of what's said but learn from other posts here. I understand your approach to sailing although it's different than mine. Please don't take the my way or the highway approach to life.

Here are some more:




Many thanks to our pal Boomer and his daughter Katie for shooting these lovely photos. They gave a day of their time to do this.
This photo pretty well sums up the mood after the first sail.
