Re: Micro v Chebacco
- LM's been in the mix too, truth to tell (though I'd hardly call it
driving myself crazy, more like revelleling in the decision).
Pippo, did you look at Long Micro? What did you find? I don't have
any Long Micro plans. Nor did I know PCB'd raised the stick on
I'd never considered the Micro might be significantly easier to build
either. Something else to add to the mix (is she really all that
easier?) Looking at the deck detail on Chebacco, maybe she is.
And, big question here, Peter L., if Micro owners are Micrites (or
whatver was decided) does that make potential Micro owners, measuring
their options, Micrometers?
Hmmm. These big questions of the universe are baffling. What to do
what to do?
If I decide for Chebacco, does that make me a Microrejectionist, or a
Microdeletist? If I build one in my head, step by step, am I a
Micromethodist? If I just like Micros, and have Micro owing friends,
am I a Microny, or just a Micronut.
Maybe if I don't like then I'm a Micronot.
Or, if I don't care one way or the other, does that make me Micronull?
Is the Long Micro a Macromicro, or do we reserve that for Loose
Moose. Has anyone noticed that Loose Moose and Long Micro share the
same acronym? LM. Did PCB do that on purpose? Oh my God! The
universe is soooo astounding!
I can't stand it. Stop me please!
Ponder these question well before responding. The fate of Microworld
depends on it....

- Of course the 2.5 feet have to go to the top of the
mast -- with 2.5 feet on the bottom, the Micro would
lose quite a bit of its shallow draft -- kind of like
the Santa Monica Pier. ;-)
