I have always liked to understand other people's opinions / viewpoints (especially
when I differ).............internet has brought a whole new level to that
..........and (on occassion) has
caused change in my own opinions / viewpoints (arguably not always for the better! - but that a different issue
). I find that in real life one tends to associate / be freindly more with folks who have similar backgrounds / views so internet
gives easy access to a wider picture
In regard to CF, the changes include:-
1) my vessel will have some anti-pirate measures (on passage
and at anchor), including weaponary
2) and possibly something that goes bang
3) will probably buy a Manson anchor
was on the wishlist).
4) Despite liking the KISS principle, likely to have a generator
onboard (for the occassional use of toys) - whether or not I go Electric
Can't point to any one person / thread that has changed my opinions on the above - I blame all
