Not funny. The stern was not designed to compensate for "following seas"
A storm or rogue wave could have an unfortunate outcome.
And the bow and superstructure don't look like a good design for a "!following-sea" (is "leading sea" used?). And one of the hazards of a following sea is that a wave hitting the boat from the rear will raise the stern and lower the bow, so that the bow will submarine under the water in front. Not good with a glass superstructure with vertical walls and front-facing doors.

But some of the SJ fans won't hear of any criticism of the seaworthiness of this boat.

And in a few years, they'll upgrade to a newer Captain, the yacht will be incompatible with him, and then they'll be forced to buy a new one

Merry Christmas all!

In a relative way,
And returned on the previous night.

It's only 1/4" thick , which is why we only see it from one angle.

Woz would agree that, without SJ, Woz would have been making computers for the last 35 years and giving them away or selling them for cost to a small number of people per year.

I believe the comment is because this site is about the company he founded not about the private lives of his family. It would be a show of respect and decorum to not post such things rather than act like the flaming hit whores on sites like cultofmac

One COULD say..."Who cares about....what you miss, what you love, your theory that the PC isn't dead, and mainly about people who lecture other people on what to respond to and what to "move on"from.
There's still time to just let people enjoy what they want..on this very night, in a mystical land, one man named Ebinezeer did just that.

I am not anybody's fan, however it would be of some interest and amusement to know what qualifies YOU to doubt the design if this vessel?
It is increasingly more difficult to find good craftsmanship within the US. Locating a good plumber in any town USA is already a difficult task. When you take into account how Americans built dwellings, sourcing workers in Europe is a no brainer.

They are not apple news and rumors. Or at least I'm sure they don't see them selves as that.

The issue wasn't that he wasn't paid, it was the amount. It seems that he pay was based on the cost of the whole thing and it wasn't as much as was originally expected and he wanted his pay off the expectation not the actual

Designed by famed "French" designer ... I have to believe Jobs family here. Designer seems to be wanting to take advantage of Jobs wealth .... I don't believe the designer has ever heard of the words "trust" and "integrity".
