SO -- MN3 , did you send him a Pm and tell him where he
could do that ;
or were you just being a Cynical Ars-(O) ?

My guess is the latter ; please prove me Wrong !

by the way, he is a great guy. Every year he attempts a new feat of some kind to raise money for charity. He took my seminar years ago so he could race in the Worrell for a charity.
Does stuff like ride a bike across USA and stuff like that. This is not just to go for a ride.

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.

I have spoken to the owner of the Rave. One of the front foils is damaged and needs to be replaced.

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 :
Reefer Madness

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.




BUT
in the end ; the dude came around and tried to overcome his
ineptitude, and actually Did go out in strong winds , and
enjoyed it
Here is what he said :

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

The how:
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
but
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 .

I know a guy that has a rave in the upstate of South Carolina, however it would be hard to find enough wind to go with it.

Nope, i don't "hate you" i can "handle your picture in usa today" and i am not "MAD",

Your athletic achievements are impressive - regardless of what vitriol comes out of your mouth (or fingers)

it's what you type and how you talk down to people (and continue to do) that i "don't care to handle"

your comments hold no water with me...

best to you ...
