Get some of the owners to write here on SN (I wouldn't pick Nuthin Wong, though)

That way you just might start (re)building credibility.

The ice age? No photos ? Didn't happen?
The French revolution ? No photos? Didn't happen?
The battle of the Little Bighorn? No photos? Didn't happen!
US war of independence? No photos ? Didn't happen!
Personal stories of the holocaust? No photos? Never happened!
Your childhood memories ? Not enough photos to document every day? 98% of them didn't happen!
Boy, you type well for a toddler!
Testimony in most court cases? No photos? Never happened!
Criminals love jurors like you.
When a Campbell River bus driver told me the natives here never owned the land, because they never paid for it ( as opposed to Columbus, who bought it off several real estate agents?), I though I was hearing the stupidest comment humanly possible!

I stand corrected!

Sigh. Brent, dude, Clive didn't say it. Do you ever get anything right?

And why did you distance yourself from Clive earlier in this thread?



Is he one of the clients you called a "drunk" or "dope smoker" earlier?

You seem really fickle in your friendships.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent:

You seem a bit angry tonight. Not everyone wants to do it your way. Live and let live makes sense to me.

I know this couple well and they are quite experienced. I don't think you have to worry much about ever having to get along with them. Tyhe husband is a commercial builder and he lkies quality things including quality boats. They like beautiful boats and they like boats that go to weather. 4' draft would be a pain in the ass to try to drive to weather. This is fact, not theory. Unless you have VPP data that you can post here to prove otherwise. Your hyperbolic performance claims don't work for me. But you don't have VPP data. I already know that.

BTW: It's only 8' draft, not 8.5'. I fibbed.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Can I get 8' of draft on my 28LOD boat? that would be better than the 5.5'.....maybe, sorta kinda..............deeper is better............oh I could say more, but fuzzy down under would probably delete me.....or it would be better on SA than here.........hmmmmmmmm.......

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

While I am going on about beautiful boats I think I should post this shot of my 62' double ender. Paint is now on hull and deck. I really like this angle from the stern.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Talking about the PRESENT (not past, not future) what can you show us then?
Based on your reply, we can conclude that you cannot provide any Pictures, Case documents, nor get any current owners to write on SN about their BS boats.

While probably a bit oversimplified and blunt it WAS an honest question, as you have shown us nothing to underpin any of your claims, and you're deliberately being demagogic and changing the subject.

Coming or going that is a beautiful boat.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
