You know, most laymen complain of the elitist attitude of sailers. Reading this thread just reinforces that stereotype.

There should be room for everyone, and the market will decide what it decides.
I saw people talking and showing a rig like this years ago and and thought then "It's about time!!"
Sailors are like humans. Slow to adopt change. Fearful of the unknown.

Who knows what is next.
