    You're at 9,000 posts soon, Doug.

    Slow down, and go out and buy a bottle of champagne.

    hmm 9,000 x 3 min minimum/post ==> 27,000 minutes => 450 hours => 51 work days ==> 10 weeks of boat building...

    Yeah so would I but its Paris in the winter, and my sailing club is only open on weekends. And I've been down with the flue for 3 of the last 4 weeks and then prior to that I was busy doing this

    Thanks, Gary. Did the boats seem to be as out of control in those conditions as the video seems to show?

    Gypsy, just for the record I never encouraged, invited or otherwise asked my stalker to participate in these forums. That is another outright lie. I told the truth about him and he used that as an excuse to pollute these forums.
    Also see post 830, page 56 here- http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/mu...lf-righting-trimaran-test-model-36058-56.html

    Doug you posted things about me that the moderator for these forums deleted. And you are again doing so by inference. Please stop. I have again reported your swipe at me to the moderator (the vast majority of my posts have nothing to do with you or your threads - anyone can verify that by looking at my posting history).

    Since it seems that you are both annoyed by one another's posts and since it seems unlikely at this point that you will be able to get along, you have both been added to one another's ignore list now. This will hopefully allow you to give one another space and keep the forum here peaceful and away from further personal jabs and prevent you from being further annoyed by each other.
