Wynand definitely declared himself a racist and proud of it. He also joined the attack on framlessness ,and only later admitted he had built a framless 38 ft Dix design, posted on the origami boats site. You also supported the notion that the steel under my mast support pipes, 13 inches of 3/16th plate, would break before the 3 -5/16th windward shrouds would, and that could happen in the first 4 hours ,. something which hasn't happened in over 40 years.
I stand by all my comments on that site.
Brent, you are brazen
I thought you'd be hanging your head in shame. "Standing in" might be a better term than "standing by" your comments. Deception spin and downright lies are the hallmarks your posts all over the internet. Your prior post that I commented on initially is very deceitful as is this one.

Lets take some examples in this post you made; that supposed comment on shape and stiffness and the other on a failure time of 4 hrs. Link my comment on either of these (since you claim I made them).
I'm contending that you simply made them up, as usual along with just about everything you post. Prove me wrong rather than the usual diatribe you resort to. Should be easy since you say I posted those comments.

Why try and paint the very professional steel boatbuilder and designer Wynand Nortje racist. Is it because of his comments on your version of origami on his site ? He also never 'attacked' frameless boats, just your claims about your version of frameless boats.

We would of course add ISAF regulation lifelines so we can enter it in a rally or two

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'm sitting here at 4:25 am trying hard to figure out what "racism" has to do with yacht design and building. Why bring that claim up? Has reasonable and cogent argument failed?

I'd better make some coffee.

Aah, don't worry about it MJ - as you say, he does this all the time. If it's like every other time he's pulled this, there won't be a link because you never said what he said you said.

No one out there really believes Brent Swain anyway. But when you get past that, he is really fun to have around.
