Brent - Just because your angry with God for always putting reefs in front of your slow ugly boats, don't take it out on him here.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

It seems to me that what was once a good thread is fast moving towards off-topic..

There is no off topic.
I learned that in the 60's.

Dude. I know just how you feel.

Dead right mate, I have been unbanned. Interesting but like Jonesy, Chall and probably a few others I simply do not have the time and energy to spend my life forum surfing. I'll go and have a read occasionally but that is about all. Must say that despite my vehement objections to the way Smack was treated at A-S I still like to think of Alex as a friend and if I do miss CA.

Maybe though if we ever find a foolproof method of keeping BBQ under lock and key I might have some free time.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent:
But you lie all the time. You make things up. You invent facts.
For instance, the time your boats passed the racing fleet in San Diego? What's with that? Do you seriolusly believe we think that is reality?

But, not to worry I am here to call you on each and every lie you tell. I have fun doing it.
If I miss one of your lies, i.e. the 28' custom Perry alu boat for instance, I'm sure Smackers will catch it.

I'll be honest, you guys are much better at throwing off grudges than I've been. And I don't say that proudly. I really hope he just got caught up in the heat of the moment back then. But that was some serious defamation that went down after I'd been booted. Not just forum fighting - but really low blows.

Even so, I would love to bury the Rocna. I know it's not worth it. I considered him a friend too. I'll try to get over it.

That said - CA is the bomb. SA may very well crater due to the lawsuit - but CA has some of the best sailors there are on the interwebs. Those guys are gold.
