Until I read your posts, I thought a stink boat was a stink boat.

Personally I don't like motoring , and do it as little as possible. Don't like the fumes, vibration, carbon monoxide etc etc
I do like being able to motor when ever I want to though - and can't imagine going without.

and then...

I love the sound when the engine is off, I love being able to feel the rig doing its work, just you and the lonely sea...
I won't like replacing the rig! I don't like dropping spinnakers in the drink, I don't like having too much sail on in a squall..etc etc

But what you say makes perfect sense. I have learned a lot from your posts, and if if gives the power/sail camps a little more understanding of each others view, then good!

Let us know when your boat has it's sea trials / maiden voyage and all that. There are heaps of people following your progress with great interest.
Here here to that! Well said!
