What's going on here then?

I see a bunch of jealous people having a go at someone who is young and has obviously done well.

I too am young and and a high achiever. Don't let the little people get to you.

Good for you Alt..nice boats.

timw - I was looking for some advise about an Icom product, and a few people decided to start having a go at me I reckon Mollers joined in at some stage because I see someone quoted a post of his. The mod's decided to move the stupid, off-topic posts to a thread of their own (here).

Bit of history: Mollers had a go at me last year for not taking his advise (He advised me to take my engine to a main Volvo dealer, but thanks to the advise I got here I managed to solve a problem myself with a few spanners and some research) - I wouldn't sink so low as to try and judge someone from an internet forum so i'll leave it at that (I guess Mollers could learn some things from a student)

Now people are having a go again at me, for a reason I can't imagine. I guess it's because i'm young, debt free and have a few toys? I work hard (along with studies) and built up my own business over the past few years, but begrudgers will always be thriving for more food, especially on internet forums where they can hide behind their computers. Whatever floats their boat I guess (no pun intended)

-Edit- Just to add, thanks for the well wishes timw. The Thundercat's are wicked fun. I bought it in April last year and spent a few months getting used to it. In June this year myself and the GF competed in the 'Thundercats European Beach Challenge' in Co. Cork, Ireland which consisted of the Thundercat UK guy's coming over for a weekend of racing. We had great fun and it was a really good learning curve. On the 2nd day I co-piloted for Team Wales. I am totally hooked on it and have sub-contracted out all my work for next summer so plan on competing in at least a few races. What really got me liking the Thundercat UK people was the community spirit, people who I knew only a short time offering to put us up if we come over to the UK etc. etc. - If you're ever in the West of Ireland give me a shout, bring a wetsuit and come for a lash!

But to keep Mollers happy let's just say I rob old grannies of their purses to pay for my toys, he'll get a good kick out of that

- Sic 'em Alt. WTF business is it of anyone on this forum how you buy your boats? Unless one's a Crompton, natch...

.... however, the enemies of one's enemy, are not necessarily one's friend.

Happy boating!

The question was whether the boats were Alt's or perhaps his Father's. Absolutely nothing to do with how they were bought or paid for.

Did someone mention 'whiffs'? Could it be chips?

Perhaps JK should set up a new section for nubiles complete with sandbox they can poop in.

I think you need to re-read what was posted with a slightly less critical eye. No-one is begrudging Alt making good money. We're just curious.They are indeed nice boats.

You may be a high earner but your posts consistently display either a very obtuse sense of humour or a dangerous lack of common sense (with the corresponding high probability of winning a Darwin award) and the attitude of the royal family.This incidentally is why you grate on people somewhat.There's no 'little man' syndrome about it in the slightest-you just get on peoples nerves.

By the way Alt, do you get the feeling this 'young' man might not be what he seems?
