Re: Hunter 33 vs CS 30

This is SailNet. It's about SAILING of all types: Daysailing, cruising, racing, dinghy sailing, picnic sailing, whatever. It's all good. Who the hell cares if someone has "a huge hole" in their "sailing resume" that hinders their "sailing career?" That judgmental stuff is just silly, and makes people reluctant to post for fear of being ridiculed - or psychoanalyzed.

Dave's a good guy who will give you the shirt off his back. He hosts his picnic out of kindness, and nothing else as far as I can tell. Lay off the guy.

All the internet bullying in the world does not change that obvious avoidance of personal growth in your sailing career.

I now understand why you feel so threatened by solo sailors and those who approach sailing as a personal challenge, instead of a social activity. The mystery is why you would feel so proud of your perceived role as the SN "enforcer". I assume the mods encourage you in this role because you perform some useful function in organizing the get-togethers and shilling for the sponsors?
Well with comments like this is is unimaginable why you wind up sailing by yourself.

Re: Hunter 33 vs CS 30

Somewhat uncalled for James. For mine it falls short , though not by much, of outright abuse but a tadge over the top nonetheless. Do remember this is not the sewer.

As for Dave being a Mod Squad undercover attack dog .... you assume incorrectly I'm afaraid buy heck well that should raise a chuckle at the Mods Club as we sit around the fire sipping our Qunita do Noval vintage Port and smoking our Monte Christos.

Cheers

ps - In reality I know nothing much about Port or Cigars so please no lecture
