You know what Random, I'm really glad for you that you're happy being a helpless disarmed subject.  Good for you.  I'm glad there are places like Australia, and I really, really wish that people in USA who think like you do would just leave here and join you over there.

 

The USA has always been different and, believe it or not, some of have no desire to become like Australia or Europe.

 

I just don't understand why people leave their countries of origin only to come to the USA and then try to change the USA to become more like the place they left.

OMG! You mean the planet's ever-changing climate actually affects the animals that live on it?!?

Thank god we have scientists to bring us astounding revelations like this.

Edit: it's a good thing we discovered the all-powerful CO2 thermostat, so we won't have to tolerate any more of this annoying climate change in the future.

Well, there probably should be mandatory background checks before a person is allowed to communicate with another. And all connected devices (cell phones, computers, etc) ought to be registered to their owners in a federal database.

Edit: on second thought, we probably ought to just ban all forms off high-capacity communication, such as social media. The ability to easily reach a world-wide audience is far too dangerous to permit access for terrorist recruiters.

It's for the children.

In Topic: Small Boat, Large Headroom

What's your idea of "cruising", and like Kim said, what kind of displacement / hull form are you thinking of?

 

Regarding headroom and single handing, well, at 6'`" I have headroom to spare throughout the main cabin in my 36' C&C, and it's an absolute joy to singlehand.  Halyard winches on the aft end of the cabintop, traveler right in front of the pedestal, and primaries handy to the helm.
