Just a quick thank you for the stimulating ideas that you have tossed out into the arena. I will follow up some of your directions. I am in the process of developing the bits and pieces for rigging a large yacht and your ideas will be a valuable resource for me. I am based in Hong Kong and would be interested in contacting your Chinese factory to see what they may be able to provide.
I am not entirely sure I will join you on the barricades against capitalism but I reckon a bit of a "rant" is good value at time and I personally enjoyed your writing and wit. I hope you can "maintain the rage" .
Thanks for a well-done study which WILL fire up many readers.
