I'd love to take credit for this deep thought, but I read it some place else... If the Polynesians had discovered the "New World", would we all be sailing trimarans?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

This line was in the ASA's Multihull Fundamentals book from about 10 years ago. I believe it was in the first chapter or the foreword.

If Polynesians DID discover the "New World", would we call Giu a HAOLE?

I can think of a lot of things to call Giu, especially about his last anti-multihull comment...but none are fit to print outside fof the Off-Topic forum.

Ah, now I get it. This thread is making so much more sense now that I'm four pages in. Crystal clear and philosophical indeed.

If it is crystal clear and on sailnet... you're obviously reading it wrong.

Philosophy deals with matters of interest to the general public, and loses much of its value if only a few can understand or is interested in what is said.

Can't tell ya how many times I've replied when asked my opinion with a " oh, absolutely I agree " ( 21st century version of " By the dog, it is true " ) to a conversation of no interest and therefore I had no desire to understand
