Bille, despite your overcoming adversity and athletic achievements, i have lost all respect for you and have no desire to respond to your insulting, egotistical, arrogant and conceited questions and comments.
The way you disrespected the people on the other cat sailing forum (rude and uncalled for) has lead me to feel this way.
You showed up bragging about your USATODAY pictures, asked a question or 2 and then acted like a complete jerk to eveyone you were just trying to impress. http://www.thebeachcats.com/index.php?module=forums&func=viewtopic&topic=15386
"If you guys had even the a shadow of a clue ; you'd know that 12v ain't gonna hurt
if Ya get shocked
that a fast acting fuse on the negative side of Any battery, would totally eliminate
any chance of injury !
You guys have the cognitive resources of a fricken Slug ; nobody actually
answered the question, you responses just showed me how Ignorant you are (.)
Time to Bail on this forum.
ByBy : Bille"
Talk about your fast acting fuses, LOL
Yep ; i got the volume turned up , kinda High !!
But at least i know now , " THE WHY" for MN3 hating me
so much !!
A picture in (USA Today); and the guy can't handle it.
You guys remember me asking the same question about electric
gloves on this forum ? I got some very intelligent responses.
Read what i got for a response over on that "Other" forum ;
first three guys are basting in there ignorance , and bashing
the idea ; you wonder Why i bailed on those guys ?
And MN3 ; he tried posting a negative comment on the article
written about me , for being the ONLY guy in the world that can
kite-board with two fake legs .
YEA MN3 , go to the Thread on this forum called :
Getting rid of the jib is Fast ; just as fast as deploying it, with a furling mechanism !
my furler is not easy to use in heavy air and more often than not does not furl the sail well ( creates a terrible hourglass shape that is flogging like crazy)
One persons fun is another persons nightmare.
in the end ; the dude came around and tried to overcome his
ineptitude, and actually Did go out in strong winds , and
Here is what he said :
well 2 months later and i purchased a 6.0 that was rebuilt with a reefing main
last week i sailed it solo in 20-25 mph, reefed and it was a blast
handled very well, no excessive weatherhelm nor deadly leehelm
sail is lowered off the hook at the head of mast and the ring is is lowered about 4' (size of bottom sail panel).
There is a very large spin lock in the base of the mast track to lock the main halyard (that is now off the hook)
reef points in the luff (new downhaul), and across the sail and leach (new clew)
another slug in the masttrack at the bottom of new foot
the sail has 2 reef patches sewn into so line/bungee can be used to roll up extra sail - which lays on the side of boom
I think what makes people like MN3 so MAD ; is that i physically
have 1/2 of what He has , but i use ALL of what i got.
It's one of the reasons i got sponsored in most every sport i
do, and i'm 62 years old. Just picked up another sponsor last
year, for paragliding !!
Here is the article if Ya wanna leave another negative review
normal people from all over the world ; they tell me that
after reading it , they don't Need the coffee to get off
there butt , in the morning .http://www.thekiteboarder.com/2010/10/the-unstoppable-billy-floyd/
