You always champion whatever system, fitting, equipment, etc,etc.that you have fitted to your current boat. Diss'ing alternative systems of which you have no knowledge or experience is not helpful.
Unfortunately, when you change boats, you then ditch your previously loudly held opinions/preferences for whatever you've fitted to the next boat.
This may possibly create a credibility issue.
