Wow T2x back then you must of shook the establishment with those designs.

The established boating gurus must of thought that was a sad example of how far we, as a nation, have sunk..... and not only morally, that's only a symptom...but, rather intellectually. Designs that appeal to a mostly young, party happy, mindless crowd who, while swaying to tribal rhythms, pass each other a "hit"....... or some extasy..or a Jack Daniels.... and design along to concepts that are demean ing to designers that should be respected in general. Said designs are delivered in broken fluidity, laced with profanities to accepted boat design, full of threats, and nonsense. What passes as inovation frequently uses the same lines or a nonsensical non conventional line to create the rhyme.

The point...blame your educational system, which has consistently lowered standards, rewarded malcontents, separated "afaleets" from any learning whatsoever..... and, in the ultimate, has now found itself with the products of its own efforts...as todays new "designeechiz".

Finally, blame ourselves, for going along with the transformation of a friggin' boat into a boat that eclipses good old paddle wheels.

I saw a TV show last year about a bunch of Russians who were trying to market some 2 or 4 seaters from down Florida way somewhere - wonder what happened to them?

Let me know if you need me to carry your toothbrush or some other big item that won't fit in your rig.
