He was rude to me and a friend, and could not stop talking about himself and his boats…..I was designing and building a cat at that time and tried to tell him, but he went right back to his boats; kept telling me how many “linear feet” of hulls he owned.
multihuler is not the guy to talk to about designing and building - not his bag - so he was likely changing the subject rather than give you bad guidance.

If it was early June, and Nice Pear (ha ha), he was rigging he was in a rush to get it ready for r2ak. He was hustling right up to the start, irrc. I was there watching him. People at boat ramps cause distraction when you are doing critical things, like raising a 45', 200 lbs mast, or making sure you've safetied all the connections.

No, he was not in any rush. Working slowly, and as I said he seemed to have quite a bit of time to tell me all about the many linear feet of hulls he owned…

I wish him luck. Maybe thousands of curious people will flock to his museum of obscure boats and pay him well for the opportunity…..who knows….

It's true that we represent a tiny niche market and will probably never achieve Walmart status but I'd pay to spend a day on any of those boats. And I'd also pay to NOT spend a day in Walmart, Disneyland, your basement model train collection or any other myriad popular attractions. Probably the biggest reason most of those boats are being abandoned is the difficulty of finding reasonable dockage. So the guy is doing something pretty great for the little community that we belong to.
 
@multihuler sounds like a good guy. I realize my original posting might've sounded a bit skeptical of his work. This wasn't the intended meaning, I've seen enough around here to have established a while ago that he's legit, I was just curious about the backstory.

Cool as in your grandpa wearing his pants just below his titties? I'm pretty sure Miles Davis would disagree with your definition of cool.

I understood what you were asking and am equally curious, all in a good way. If SA ever felt like posting an actual article on the front page that’s of any interest, I’d bet he’d make for a great interview.
