Re: Interesting Sailboats

Bjung:
Interseting boat ( 46) I like the deck edge detail.
As I have said s many times here, and made a few people unhappy, Chines don't benefit all boats. Give the D/L of this type I can;t se chines helping performance. Chines might help interior volume aft but not performance in terms of boat speed. Chines could provide a marginal increase in stability but not enough to offset the negative effect of digging the chne in at modetae angles of heel in moderate breezes.

I suspect J/V know exactly what they are doing. They seem to do it very well, over and over.

These are a better source for information:

I've never met a Canadian who liked to be called an American.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

But it appears there is no more Portugal - only "Europe".

Or maybe I just don't know my geography.

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.

"I've never met a Canadian who liked to be called an American."

Yes, it's a bit like calling a Kiwi and Aussie or callling a Taiwanese a Chinese. They may smile and correct you but inside they are seething.

curious on anybody's take on the "new" soft wing Benetau is pursuing. Sail just did a big spread on it.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Me thinks that Paolo is correct about the geography. Last time I checked Canada was located in North America, no?

But that does not really matter, because this thread had gone from being full of interesting new sailboat designs to a discussion about cars, rallye and geography.

While I very much like Bob's designs and follow the Sliver and Catari thread over at CA, he is only one NA with only so many new designs. Not enough maybe to keep this thread going and full of new interesting sailboats.

So, since Paolo (sort of) left, this thread has unfortunately gone to shite.

Mission accomplished, I guess.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Canada and the US are both in North America but we do not refer to each other as "North Americans" they way you might say "Europeans".You might say it but we don't.

As for cars, that was Paulo's idea pushing his ignorant stereotyping of Americans. We just followed up on that. It needed correcting.

No, you are correct, I can't keep the thread going with my design output. Not enough there. We miss Paulo's posts and the hard work he put into the thread. but I don't miss his attitude. I wish him the best with his blog. I do visit it. My blog is doing exceptionally well these days.

Life is thread drift.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

OPC:
Yes, that is exactly correct. You are spot on. Amazing insight. Bravo.

So, once again, if you don't like it you can leave. Some of you are very slow learners. Nobody forces anyone to come here.
