Hmph! If you go to wireless, you can use a 4 port router! All the laptops can use the wireless that way and you can connect the gaming computers via the 1 gig ports. (I personally only have one full size gaming computer on board! The issue is the heat! went to water cooling to solve that.) I haven't been having much luck with my extender of late. I am currently using a USB LinkSys wireless. I can position that for maximum reception. Seems to work better than the extender!.

I don't however have an electric dishwasher on board!

And oh yeah, I like dogs a bit better than cats, but my wife won't let me get a Doberman.

That is one sweet kitty. We have a cruising cat too, he is great company for us and makes the boat feel more like home.

Personally, if your hull is not coloured cream, I reckon your boat will sink and it must be slower, wetter and less comfortable than mine.
You are indeed a wise man Talbot....not that I say to to everyone who agrees with me, which sadly now only adds up to 2

When the Americas Cup was on down here, the one full of Monos , our Viaduct Basin where most of the Superboats (again all monos) were parked was known to the locals as 'Small Penis Land'

What's all this 2 washing machine bits? I tend to use a far more masculine way to wash mine. A onion sack with all your dirty stuff in it and then towed about 5mls works bloody wonders and far better for the environment. About 8mls if you have been doing a engine service but only 1-2mls if you chuck your dirty dishes in. Does pay to go a bit slower when you have the plates in though

Berated? I just read this thread and have to say that for an Aussie you're a bit sensitive as there's no 'berating' going on here. I love my boat, but I like monos too. I sail both and prefer the cat. It's that simple.

Oh.. I see. You want a catamaran, you dream of catamarans, but you can't afford a catamaran. So is this thread really about catamaran envy?


Someone already said it. This thread is a waste of time.

Oops!



They're roomy, but it seems I'm always going to windward anyway.

Well, at least the ton of lead in a monhull makes it level for the short time it's in the water column, anyway..

I have never mentioned a video about anything on any post but why let fact get in the way. Forget the fact that all I was trying to do was get people to read the article but instead all I have received is crap directed at me. All bar one so far has not even read the piece, a bit like not seeing a movie but saying it is crap just because you may not like the story line.

Unfortunately it is an Australian Publication called Cruising Helmsman. They have a web site which may help for those OS. www.mysailing.com.au
