Wify B,
The over use of the word "like" is .. like trashy teenybopper lingo.
This forum is like .. adult.
My opinion of you has like tumbled knowing this. You're not like modest w your like essence. Let it like all hang out.

Seriously it's hard not to start talking like all the people around you. When I went to Memphis for several mos my mother almost kicked me out when I came home. Said I like sounded like a hillbilly. See what I mean.

Boats 7,8, 9 and 12 are trawlers ... all others are not.

Maybe not....acting like adult or being adult can be two different things.

I tried acting like and adult once....didn't fit....

Just like Trawler and trawling....two different things also.

I don`t think so -he got sent to the other camp where people go that we know are emminently sensible, who we know are correct in what they say, who are far more articulate than most of us and who aren`t afraid to tell those of us who make rediculous statements the truth.

He may have even checked in himself out of pure frustration.

I see a wide variety of boats here, so what exactly makes a boat a trawler?

Good, he can go preach in that camp. Heard enough of it in this camp.

No trawler here. I call it a "Downeast styled" cruiser.



I call this a touring car.



I call this a sports car.



You can call them anything you like.

Nope, still scared to use the term, words don't change in meaning.

No telling what rules will be broken if we go allowing the meaning of words to change, can you imagine the inhumanity.

Boats 3,5,8 and 9 in my pictures above are actual downeast cruisers (an Ellis, a Hinckley and two Wilburs - all built in Southwest Harbor, ME).

Greetings,
Mr. W. Actually he (Mr. SCOTTE) didn't really misuse the word gunnel.
gunnel - definition of gunnel in English from the Oxford dictionary

I spent one summer with a cousin in rural NC. I returned home to cosmopolitan city in NC with a changed accent. Now, in speech my wife seldom uses like. Occasionally Valley Girl emerges in a moment of excitement and exclamation such as "Omg is this like for real?"

We've noticed a distinctive change, although not major change, in accent and speech patterns in a girl who moved from Eastern NC to live with us in Fort Lauderdale 2 years ago at the age of 18.

Oh and I can assure you my wife will never complain about being called a teenybopper. She got carded recently in a restaurant and it was a very joyous occasion for her. After, she turned to me and said "surely the waitress didn't really think I needed to be carded?" We don't know. Waitresses do know how to flatter and have happy customers.

Didn't say "downeast cruiser". I said "downeast styled cruiser". However it was built in South Casco, Maine so . . . . . . call it what you like.

The Nordy's dont elicit "trawler" from me, or most folks for that matter. I'm not taking anything away from them, and I am exceedingly jealous of owners of Nordhaven boats. I would LOVE to own one. Just not my idea of a trawler. Better maybe ? I dont know.

No, I want it to mean what it actually means. It's a fishing term, plain and simple. Anything else is marketing hype, misconstrued, made up, or just plain wrong. I didn't invent the word and I didn't define it. I have no idea what the origin of "trawl" is but it's not rocket science to know what it means and to use it properly.

Krogen, as nice as his boats are, was passing on BS when he called them "trawlers." Based on trawlers, absolutely. Trawler design elements, absolutely. Inspired by trawlers, absolutely. But "trawlers" or "trawler yachts" or "trawler cruisers?" No frickin' way unless he was putting trawl gear on the boats. It's a simple, black-and-white thing.

Basically, what he and all the other "recreation trawler" folks did was call a pig a hippopotamus and the toy-boat crowd fell for it.
