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.

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.

Well there are definitely fewer pointed shoe boxes with IKEA interiors but there is still interesting stuff going on.

Paulo has his blog if you miss them.

" pointed shoe boxes with IKEA interiors"

Do you mind if I use that in a review Jon?

You are certainly right about that. This thread is now aligned with the general view of this forum regarding sailboats. No more Ikea boats, only good old boats, with some new Bob ones designed on the same spirit: Good old American style boats, as Bob likes to call them.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

If every one got past their hissy fits can someone ( even Paulo ) post new sailboats. Used to come and lurk. Enjoyed it.
Think they make boats in nz and oz. know nothing about them. That would be a good start. No old world new world nonsense.
