A couple of times now I have looked at a video clip on youtube named ( Tiki 21 sailing fast) it is absolutely hammering along, this makes me wonder why quite a few posters are very quick to put these designs down? It certainly looks stable,safe and capable to me. Strangely enough every time these designs are discussed, out come the knockers? Could it be the inability to actually build a boat so it must come from a shop or it simply will not work? Is owning and sailing a boat just about bragging rights? Is it all about racing
once a month and then talking it up for three weeks? If the computer says it is good it just has to be? Here is some food
for thought, One man defies the pen pushers over 50 years ago, proves them all wrong. On that famous return with a couple of (hotties) are we expected to believe he would have been happier watching T.V. in his bridgedeck saloon
. I wonder how many books
he could have read,waters he could have explored, designs he could have pondered in the time it would take to put his two-bobs worth in 5 or 6000 times on a forum? Where would we be without pioneers like Mr James Wharram
?. OOOPS rhetorical question, bobbing around in overpriced, overrated,plastic heaps of sh#t.
