My compromise is rarely claiming anything as undisputed and trying to include lots of if, buts and maybes with the goal of helping folks puzzle out own answers rather than spoonfeeding 'em - which nonetheless when seen as "only" opinions can upset those looking simply for facts. Especially on subjects where there are no easy universal answers
. Some things are a no win scenario
......But I come from a school
of thought that says 2 plus 2 often enough equals four not to need to use fingers to count that high
. Which in practice means I have worked out stuff like that pouring gasoline on my head
whilst smoking a ciggarette is (probably) not a great idea - without either having done that (well, not at the same time!), nor having the scars to prove it - simply for the satisfaction of others. I also like to consider that my stupidity does have limitations (everyone needs a delusion or 2
) and that includes not being a guinea pig just in case others may one day want an easy online answer.
In regard to OP (Don) - one thing he is (IMO) an expert on is in making Hunters seem like normal boats
. and I genuinely mean that in a good way. Honest injun
- probably done more for the Hunter
image than most by the simple "trick" of not going all Multihull
style mental on folks
(no matter that no doubt patience sorely tried!).
