You have to just learn to ignore SmackDaddy. His mouth has already been proven to be bigger than his credibility.

Yikes. The snark level here and the personal attacks remind me of another forum where it is no longer even worth the time to try to read between the lines. The troll factor has risen sharply lately. Disappointing.

Did I say any of those things cb? Look at the title of the thread. These young punks are obviously having a BLAST using a production SAILboat as transportation - and it's a great video. That's praiseworthy in my book.

You might be a little hyper-sensitive.

Niot at all smackypantz. I appreciate the newer hunter like anyone else (mebbe too much), and a catalina and the jeanneau and the beneteau (if the rudder post doesnt snap off and sink).

Its called sarcasm. Obviously you are incapable of seeing that. Here is the definition for you. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sarcasm?s=t

Also in your post to the thread "Hunters are cool!" over at SA, where you lifted the video from, you said, and I quote;

"All of the above is why I bought a Hunter.


Eat your hearts out fellas."


Trust me, there will be no heart eating in regards to this or anything else Hunter related..... Enjoy your 4kt SB.

I hadn't seen that video before, but I have hiked up to a few of those viewpoints they were biking at. Brings back good memories, thanks for posting. The boat we were on was a Northsea 34 pilothouse, a decent boat for the PNW. I don't know the difference between production and non production, so I'm not weighing in on this thread.

You seem a little on edge cb. I don't recall ever scruffing with you, so this all seems a little...shrill.

What exactly is wrong with what I posted on SA - and what exactly does it have to do with anything here? BTW - did you actually not see the "sarcasm" in the statement itself - being on SA and everything? Think for a moment and read your definition a few more times. You might get it eventually. And feel free to jump into that thread over on SA. I don't mind a bit. It might be fun.

Speaking of SA and, as you say, my "4KSB" - I'll leave you with this...

BENETEAU 235 - 195
HUNTER 40 - 96

Yeah, that's what it rates. You were saying?

Re: In praise of production boats!

uh.. guys... that 'Trail Hunter' video is very well done, and shows off our geography pretty well. But there's no real 'Hunter'(sailboat) connection here. The Hunter used is probably coincidental. The main rider's name is Hunter.

He has a lot of other equally good biking vids on the toob, btw.. really great stuff, well produced

Wait - there was a dude riding bikes? I just saw the Hunter 375 Yacht rippin' it up out there. I'll have to watch that again.
