Is this thread really ending?

Before it fades out, I wanted to say that I really appreciate Ken's comments.

It seems like a whole lot of people have very strong opinions on this business. (I am referring mostly to people outside of this message board.) I claim no knowledge of sailing and have refrained from expressing strong opinions, but what Ken has said rings true for me. If nothing else, he makes sensible comments that seem to be entirely lacking in the media coverage.
