It isnt over till the fat lady sings,

Charles does have a point,the problem is how do we get our strongly felt views over without upsetting each other.If you own a rib,that was purchased a couple of yrs ago then at that time you went for the best techi available,at that time.

Things change and time moves on,it is not very nice to find out that the best rib in the world to you is maybe now a little outdated in others views,or the kit you have on her is regarded as old hat due to developments by manufacturers.

My overiding feeling is that when we all meet up things will be completely different as quite frankly if your a good fun sort of bloke and decent,then I dont give a monkees what sort of boat you have,or your views on trim tabs or anything else for that matter.As Manos is a good bloke and dare I say it so was Flanker in my opinion.

The problem with internet forums is we get an imaginary impression of what the other person is like,but if you have ever been on a blind date you will realise,it is never the same as what you imagined it to be,{having met a 20 stone darling in my past life} Therefore we react without feelings and can be overly critical of each other.

We need to remember that we are all people with feelings and dreams behind our names what are sometimes swathing comments can hurt others,and it is certainly is not my intention to ever try and upset somebody for the sake of it.Although if somebody post something I disagree with then I shall say so,in my humble oppinion.


We maybe should all be more helpful to each other and try and get away from this " I'm always right! response,as we are all always right given our own experiences at that point in time. Some have more on a subject others have less. Thats All.


So Diggi please try and be nice as your experience on speed and the workings of gearboxes will be good for us all to learn,and Charles you have been most helpfull in doing somethings for me,and I thank you,JW your drive and engine info is of real use,as I wasnt aware of the drives capabilities and we have both made in my opinion the right choice at this point in time,Next yr there will be others that can demonstrate there own new engine/drive systems that will proberbly knock spots off ours,but who realy cares,becouse I dont.

When we all see each other on the water we will welcome each other with open arms Im sure,so lets not get bogged down before that happens with loads of meaningless nastiness as we will all lough about it later on,out on the sea.

And if foggy reads this then lets have a laugh about 35knts in fog and not take it to heart as I'm sure he doesnt do it all the time,and if you do then so be it.

So in conclusion lets all remember we are human beings and maybe we have ideosyncracies like my crap spelling,but I am not a bad person,and hopefully neither is diggie or charles,just bored cos were not out on the water,where we will all meet up and it will be a laugh,thats what I am looking for.

Im also of the opinion that if we saw anybodys rib or boat on the slip,no matter what has been said on here before,we would go over and introduce ourselves and have a laugh with that person and be left with the feeling of how daft we were to think bad of them.

So realy it means nothing in the real world what we say on a forum, therfore we might as well say nice things and wherever possible help with Techi problems,as no matter what we do it will only influence each other in the short term, as we will make our own minds up when we meet up as it does in the real world.This is a virtual arena,nothing more or less,and it can never be anything more than that.

Dont take it personaly - JK

CH, I believe Diggie Pimpernel is sunning himself at the Miami boat show. Either that or he's been sent to the US as British ambassador.
