LMAO Thank you! Thank you for reminding me what grandma always said, "No matter where you are in life, there will always be people more fortunate and less fortunate than you."

Should we start a Special fund for him? Perhaps just let him clutch straws and pray for his soul? Hmmmmm conundrum. He at least has a boat! I don't yet!

Yes I remember gamespy too. I wish I could find that sound bit that would play when I launched the game. "Let's get on with the killing". Very cool

You may have read that paper where they argued that experts who assigned higher probabilities to their forecasts turned out to be further off in their judgements than those that assigned higher rates of uncertainty to their forecasts.

The time you think you have it all figured out, that's when you are most wrong.

When you research it yourself, it will stay a bit longer with you than if I just hand you the answers. There is no doubt in my mind that there are countless artisans, craftsmen and Old Salts, on CF, that are frustrated with what I state because of lack of a "complete explanation"; it is not always possible to dilute engineering concepts to just a few sentences. Boat building has been with us since biblical times; the laws of physics that were applied since day one, still applies today albeit under an engineering umbrella.

Yeah, right. Not buying that. More like you won't try to explain yourself 'cause you don't wanna expose your total lack of experience in boat repairs. Horizontal cracks can't be fixed, lol! I've worked on many boats owned by people like you, convinced their engineering degree trumps our scads of real world experience. It doesn't come even close. Fess up, you don't know what you're talking about when it comes to fixing boats! How many major structural repairs have you personally executed, by yourself? It annoys me when people refuse to even attempt to back up their BS, and this was a particularly annoying attempt to do that. Only thing I'm frustrated about is that someday someone on the forum might actually believe you and give up on a boat that's easily fixable.
