Unless someone can convince me that this thread is somehow substantially related to boating
, it's closed. We've let it run a bit, true, but we really would like to keep the discussions on CF boating
related. That's not to say that the opinions offered up in this thread aren't interesting and very intelligently crafted--they are. They're just too off-topic.
There are a lot of sites that allow non-boating threads, and that policy ends up forcing those looking for boating-related topics to wade through thread after thread of off-topic "stuff". We're not totally purists on this, but we try to stick to our guns
. Whoops, not guns
, we don't like guns, either! We stick to our cannons
