    Good read from Power and Motoryacht magazine-gctid821317

    It reminds me of the Bayliner bashing on a certain boat brand forum.

    Thanks for that one. The bashing has gone on forever. I attribute it to making themselves happier about the choice that's so great, everyone should do we they did and/ or a personal confidence issue. I learned a long time ago to buy what works for me, not the next guy.

      That article hits plenty of different things on the internet right in the bulls eye. Snowmobiles, boats, hunting, fishing, team sports, news, etc... The list goes on. It blows my mind when I read a news article on the web about anything. The comments are unbelievable. I've come to the conclusion that for some people, their lives must be so miserable that instead of making it better, they would rather see yours get worse. Fortunately that is only a few but their voice certainly carries well in the electronic world we live in today. Anyway, I like the demeanor on this forum. The threads are more about people helping people enjoy their hobbies. Oh, and I have always liked my Bayliners too.

            I felt the same attitude when I first joined THT. Told them I bought and owned a Bayliner. The comments issued by THT members were less than complimentary. Now that I have the Carver the treatment is not the same. That said a Carver is a production boat just like a Bayliner. Both brands have their +'s and -'s. There are things I liked about my various Bayliners and there are things I like about my Carver. Of course there were/are things I don't like with each of them. No boat is perfect.

              I'd be interested to hear your pros and cons on the carver versus the bayliner when i had a 3587 I often wondered how they compared in build quality and features versus the bayliner.

                Me and the mods sleep a LOT better at night these days. Part of me wants to talk about current events, but it's clear to me we are a divided country, that no amount of debate will shore up.

                    Good Article. I started posting over at THT. I find if I stay in the regional forums and talk about boating and not boats it stays pretty mud slinging free.

                      I had not heard of that site before so I looked it up to see what it was about. The article in the original post here has sure created a lot of negative buzz over there.

                        Matt, I agree with what you wrote. I still miss PP, as I found nearly everyone here could discuss politics without stopping to personal insults. That isn't the case elsewhere.

                        I'm happier when I stick to boating.

                          When I first started using the internet for advice on going to different places, I was researching dive destinations and the shops who took you there. I had used Ocean divers in the past (this is a 5 star operation). The first post was 1/5. They had a terrible time, captain was discourteous, seas were rough as well as a current, and the water cloudy. Of course, they saw very little marine life. The next post was a 5/5. Saw marine life, visit 100+ feet, captain guided them to the best spots, etc. I looked at the date time of the posts, the two post people were on the same boat same time, same reef.

                          I asked a friend who is a psychologist and he said some people get their jollies by slamming others, their stuff is better, more expensive, goes faster, etc. even though they don't have a clue as to what its all about.

                          I tend to ignore bad posts unless ALL the posts are negative. There is a tendency of those who were slammed to defend their choice of products. Better to have those people on THT rather than here......
