That’s like the guy who builds up some car, never shows up at the track, and brags to everyone how it’s faster than all the silly new cars. It means nothing. I’m only giving you a hard time because you always insist everything you did is better.So I launched a boat 28 years ago that is lighter - fact, more cost efficient - fact, more accommodating - fact, probably faster, came out at build weight - fact, never had any structural issues -fact, never failed to finish a single race or passage or give me a scary moment - fact and still looks and is like new after many thousands of offshore miles.
It's the "new" stuff that has to deliver and prove itself. I am waiting to see it.
It’s still a fantastic boat, and I’m sincerely not trying to be a jerk.
