    Default pr0n

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I grew up around the sunfish and sailfish and hated them.

    The laser arrived and I was too stupid to see that it was a game changer.

    Fabulous picture. But these days, Lasers are overpriced and underdesigned. Older ones were more durable. And there are better designs available. But most of all, because Laser performance succeeded in *somehow* getting an official for collegiate sailing to only allow regattas at schools that buy Laser Performance boats (where they don't have a monopoly, like FJs), I refuse to buy *anything* made by Laser. Ever again.

    Have you read the sorry saga of the Kirby Torch renaming?

    I read about it years ago but had not stayed updated, I just looked. Typical, his rights as designer being ignored. I wish someone with serious wheaties in the sailing community and/or big bucks, like Ted Turner (who learned on Lasers) or Ellison or others would organize a boycott against Laser because of this. As a lesson, when one of the larger gun makers decades back caved to political correctness and the prevailing government view on gun control (because the proposed ban did not affect their model guns), the gun community was very swift in boycotting their entire product line, the company tanked, and the CEO was replaced and the position reversed.
