    This is not a row. This is a lively debate.

    Dat's de one.

    The thing is, you've got to air these big questions from time to time, even thought they have inevitably been done before. (Not helped by the fact that the ybw search engine never seems to work.) Unlike other, similar forums, this one does not insist on wooden boats, but classic boats. That is a very interesting and extremely subjective term and one that I am always interested in hearing other people's definition of.

    Oops sorry Niander, forgot you had one ! Had that drummed into me by the old boys at Shepherds here, who used to make similar carvel FB's in the 50's & 60's (that cost twice as much ..)

    I guess if you want to do a jester & cross the Atlantic a few times you might want to get a few tubes of glue, just in case, but for a bit of local pottering just slap some paint on light the pipe & sup the amber nectar. Bit of clean salt water keeps the bilges sweet anyway. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Tell me, what kind of fantasy world do you occupy? You know nothing about me and you proceed to insult me with offensive ad-hominem abuse and presumptions about me and how I live my life, based on nothing more than your own prejudices.

    Pay attention to the following: you have lost the argument when you resort to personal smears.

    And that is the end of that.

    Sorry that you feel like this. I based my response on your previous choice of words and general conduct toward others, it is the only conclusion that I personally can genuinely arrive at.

    All I am saying is that you fit in to an accepted sterotype ( based on your own words in this thread) that I have personally experienced. I did try to explain that this was a theory, but surely something must account for the aggression and unpleasantness you chose to use for no good reason.

    If my theoretical reasons are wrong, which they appear to be, I would genuinely like to know what makes you behave in this way and the reasons for it.

    I genuinely wish to know.
