This reminds me of the Harley vs. Godwing debate.
I don't care what you ride as long as you are a true biker!In the same vain, I don't care what you sail as long as you are a true sailor willing to help others sail.

And yes, I now own a M26.. It's exactly what we need right now. I have owned other makes. We are land locked and need to travel.to dive sights. The M26 has plenty of room for gear, is easy to trailer and launch and can traverse shallow areas.

It fits our needs economicaly and we can enjoy sailing at the same time.

I think they discuss Tartans now. I stay out of it, lest Tayana make it onto the list,... again... darn shoe bashers...

Why, why, why?

Of course there are plenty of aholes in the "real" world too.

I have tried to be more open minded but at times it can be hard.
I may be mistaken but it seems some others may have become a bit more tolerant.
I've been guilty of some of that. Mostly from ignorance of how forums worked, and that you can't tell sometimes when someone is being sarcastic or making a joke.
The Ford verses Chevy argument is a fun one for me, always has been, but some people get real serious about it, and downright mean.
I like my little boat and have a good time on it. There's always going to be a better boat . Even if you owned a Swan, there would be somebody that would look down their nose and think there was a flaw somewhere.
Who cares ? lifes too short to fuss all the time.

I'll let you in on a secret about sailnet:
Racers bash cruisers.
Saltwater sailors bash freshwater sailors.
Conservative old salts bash brash overconfident novices.
Monohullers bash multihullers.
Bulb keelers bash old shoe cobblers.
and vice versa.

Don't think you are special because you feel persecuted. EVERYONE BASHES EVERYONE ELSE.

If you can, and will, defend yourself and your boat against the verbal bashing that comes your way, then you have a boat you love, and the confidence to sail her. If you feel you have to leave because your feelings are getting hurt, maybe the problem isn't everyone else...

Were are the MacGegors

Hi all
So to start whats wrong with us Canandians? eh..lol
Most of us are under a blanket of snow. Nanna, is still all tucked up under her tarp, cold, lonely and waiting for the warmer weather, I'm with her though.
S I would say some of us are just hibernating.

Does anyone have a link to the "tiller to engine" steering system that was on the old Bob White site?

The one that used a pcv pipe and some hooks and I bolts as I remember.
