Brent, if you genuinely believe that Sully runs a great site and that he is a great moderator then that explains to me alot about your perspective.
I assume in you saying he is a great moderator you are aware of past allegations of him threatening physical violence on SN members, as well as his mud slinging campaign where at one time he accused a SN member of child porn.
If you do believe him to be a beacon of balanced opinion and free speech I would again encourage you to go frequent his playbox.
Smack my hero??? Nah.
If I cared what you thought that much I would post links to several different threads where I have actively disagreed with him. He is a good guy though, and funny. You are neither.
I'm not going to debate you on boat design anymore. There are those here far more qualified than I to so, and from where I sit they sir have wiped the floor with you.
Brent, you have done more to harm your name and your business in this thread than the 'plastic salesman' could of in a lifetime.
I haven't seen any of the posts by Sully which you claim. Given the irrational, childishness of those who dedicate themselves to obsessive attacks, which he must have to deal with, all for providing an exchange of information to help cruisers, I can understand him losing his cool.
Sporadic and limited internet access here has limited my ability to respond to all the negative disinformation others have given , putting me at a disadvantage in these debates, but while my critics have been siting at their computers for hours on end , which I don't have the option nor the inclination to do, saying I'm doing it all wrong, I have been cruising for months on end , in one if the best cruising grounds in the world ( which I thought was the whole point) while the guys who do it the other way, spend a year working ,in order to spend three weeks here.
So who is wiping the floor with who?
Almost all of those you say are wiping the floor with me, have almost zero experience in the subject at hand , long term cruising in, maintaining and and building, steel sailboats . Its easy to be considered "Right ", by someone with no experience in the subject at hand . Is your interpretation based on the same lack of experience in the subject at hand? If so, then your conclusions are meaningless.
My comments are not necessarily aimed at my relatively tiny percentage of critics on this site, but those many other silent readers on this site who get it. Those who don't, I don't give a rats ass about, and am happy to drive them away, and not have to deal with their consumer gullibility.
