My thoughts exactly. It is a complete waste of time and breath. He just groundshifts, uses every logical fallacy in the book, claims black is white, ignores the point blank demonstrations that what he is saying is absolute nonsense, and carries on, burying reality in post after google
cherry picked post. I was just about done when he recently started arguing (because the evidence is not just TOO strong) that Oceanis' utterly crap wood, plastic and glue rudder
structures were NOT in fact good for ocean service
, and were not INTENDED for such service
, and that only "Voyage boats" were, at the same time denying he had argued for months against that very position last year, as it is exactly what we were saying to him all along. He flatly denied he had ever said any such thing. Honestly, this particular thread is so filled with straightforward chauvinism and bigotry as well, that I am completely over it. As to his nonsense about "one way drift" and the need for reversing winds… he appears not to realise that there are constantly opposing airstreams in any ocean, and it is just a matter of changing latitude to find and use them…
He is on the ignore list and will never get another response from me, nor any more of my time, at all.
In fact I am beginning to tire of doling out, for absolutely nothing, and often in the face of walls of nonsense, quantities of my hard earned knowledge on this site, altogether. You are one of the best, though, and it is always a pleasure to read your posts. I don't suppose you will be in Newport
