Smile Trawler Forum Marin Trivia

We all know that Marin has no problem stating his preference about things boat and boat related.

How much do we know about his opinions.

If you answer this right you get to pose the next question.

What does Marin think about Forward raked Windows?

Respond with a quote if you can for proof.

Yes he does. He uses it as a door stop. Don't know which door for sure, but I thinks it's his garage door.

If Marin was on his boat traveling to Prince Rupert at 6 knts.
Cary passed him along the way. Would Cary be able to see marin?

Trick question.

No one got this one.
Marin never drives from the fly bridge so Cary could not see him just his boat.

Skipperdude: Aren't those "wannabee" windows on your vessel? Woops...I got 'em too. Oh well, at least you've got the genuine, authentic paravanes to thwart off any suspicions.

I don't know if this thread is intended to be funny, but I find it in rather poor taste. Making a prolonged joke of a member's opinions is not the spirit of Trawler Forum.

Common man, It is just for fun everyone know's Marin is outspoken in his opinions of what he likes and dislikes he repeats it often. Just fooling around.

Marin has been a mainstay with the forum for many years.
His comments are all well regarded.

I for one would be honored to call such a man friend or at least personal aquaintence Even if just thru the internet and this forum.
I don't think his skin is that thin.

His comments are indepth well writen and well thought out.

If only I could write so well.
I admire him and his accomplishments.
