You and I have had our disagreements in the past, some of them pretty strong. But while we may disagree on some aspect of aesthetics or aerodynamics that does not change the fact you have done more--- certainly in the maritime environment---than I could even dream of doing myself. To not respect that and the person who did it would be truly foolish on my part.

And while I have no clue how anybody else on this forum regards you, I would find it hard to understand how anyone could feel differently than I do.

I will agree, however, that Mark certainly deserves the Tolerance, Patience, and Civility award. I don't know how he does it in the face of some of the crap that flies around here at times. If Trawler Forum was a boat, Mark would be the keel that keeps it all upright.
with every word above

I look forward to meeting Mark soon. Eric and I have shared perhaps 100+ private messages and detailed e-mails too numerous to count. I'd like to meet him someday as well.

I have learned much from all the members input on this forum. Eric however has taken it to a new level by sharing much of his insight with me about boat design, construction, propulsion systems and just practical knowledge through often exhaustive and time consuming e-mail exchanges. Really has been quite a mentor to me in all honesty. The photographs and links provided led to even more reams of info has been invaluable in helping me determine the boat that is right for me at this point in my life.

All the nominees put forth so far are completely worthy of the Hall of fame moniker in my opinion.

Greetings,
OK, all y'all just hold your horses here. Seems like a bunch of pseudo-normal people joining me. Well, I suppose there's always ONE crazy uncle RT in every family...so carry on.

Maybe we should consider quality rather than quantity. There used to be an old saying: "He likes nothing better than the sound of his own voice."

I agree the person we should honor is the person/persons that host this site!

I sort of analyzing the number and who rely this year. The Average replies gets 20 to 30 views. About a dozen members do 50 to 60% of the replies, another dozen does 25 to 30% of the replies. So voting by the number of post, and length of replies?

The members I consistently read and learn from this year are: Eric for sharing his trip South. Daddy for share Hurricane Sandy and his cruising. Both have one of the longest topics for replies, views and length of time.

So my vote this year is between Eric and Daddyo for sharing.

A "split" ticket! (Interesting, but not a vote in this case.) We need votes for one person.

Dang, Walt. What did you go and do that for? Only one vote! We have many worthies even if Eric did move when he learned that I may come to spend a month with him. It is very difficult for me to vote for one when others are just as deserving. In the words of Jimmy Buffet, "indecision may or may not be my problem".

I know what you mean Don but don't you think we need a clear winner? I can see it now, Antonio Serabochi has 133&3/4 To Spiegle Ratkoff's 133&7/8. Now, in this case Spiegle is the clear winner unless someone sues for a recount. I'm trying to head off a situation like that at the pass!

Actually we don't Walt. You must be the personality type that needs things DECIDED. J type personality.

I'm the opposite. I prefer to keep my options OPEN. Once things are decided it's game over.

OK - I've been sitting around all afternoon waiting for offers of chocolate, hot cars, fabulous trips, etc in return for acquiring my vote for just one new Hall of Famer, but alas none have arrived. Carry on...

Thanks, Marin but I think Eric is still researching the subject.

Now that's class! It's also the benchmark for future HOF inductees.

Walt,
Read the book (Please Understand Me). It's based on the Carl Jung studies of personalities. J types are planners and they like things decided.

P types are more interested in the process and the journey. They prefer a state of undecidedness. The only way to insure that there are options and/or possibilities.

What J and P stand for is misleading.
