Firstly, I dd not disqualify myself from doing so. Secondly, I have formed my opinions from what has been stated coupled with my own experiences. I'm sure most others have done the same.

Please enlighten us with your experience on this subject.
Boat construction?
Child care?
Medical knowledge?
Ocean crossings?

Don't see the need to list my CV in order to express my opinion.

Opinions are like noses, everyone has one, and they all smell. Whether one is qualified to render a valid opinion is another story altogether.

Maybe you should have listed yours prior to giving your opinion. By extension maybe everybody should also list their bona fides prior to posting.

Scottuk:

Captain58sailing does indicate his "qualifications": His location, type and pic of boat, # of posts, and the nature of his posts on this thread.

Yours have mainly seemed negative and contentious to this observer.

Hence my prior post.

Not sure why these particular qualifications are needed to render an opinion.

I would say the same about most of yours posts that I have read. You are very much a participant rather then an observer.

Anyway, I would prefer to discuss the topic of this thread.

Re: Captain's Log, April 30, 2014 from the Rebel Heart Blog

With yet another cascade of personal remarks the death knell for this thread has tolled and because there is no further information coming from the topic of the thread we are closing it. Shame that it comes to this really.
