Wrong, rude, and uncalled for.
I for one like chatting about boats. I have benefited in my design work from
advice given on this list from various people including pro designers who
have freely passed on knowledge in this forum. Of course I want to promote
my designs and business. What is wrong with that! I need to earn a living!
As do Jarcat, Hughes, Woods et al.
It also helps those who want a boat to chose designs and designers.
I believe we have all given helpful advice on this list at times. Thanks to
Tom Speer and others who have added interesting information to the list.
Even tho I need to go back to the textbook for hours to understand Tom.
Remember there is not much new under the sun and we can all benefit from
adding to our knowledge.
