This is clearly not a rational, reasoned issue with usmc1833. His responses here and in the "sister" thread show that he is fixed on this design. He doesn't want a group of people (no matter how well-credentialed or well meaning) telling him what a bad idea he has. I'm old enough to know that you should never insult a man's wife or his boat.
Learning to recognize and TAKE good advice is something I, luckily, learned early.
I have since learned that many people get well on in years before making that discovery and some never do. Spending your whole life learning EVERYTHING the hard way must be tough.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
