Yachting Answers on Quora

Filed under: Miscelaneous — Richard Jordan @ 12:00 am

Looking for an answer to a yachting question? Recently I have rediscovered Quora, a growing Question and Answer website. Quora is an interesting site because it has managed to draw so-called “high value contributors” who post under there real names. With the San Francisco America’s Cup coming up, Quora has quite a bit of activity in regards to yachts and boats. Also pushing up the content are the contributions of Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia fame who has taken on the topic of Boating as his medium to contribute to and explore on Quora. One his best answers is to the legendary “Are there more boats or pasta?” question.

If you are looking for answers, anyone can sign up and post a question. Or if you are interested in receiving a weekly email with the most popular of that week’s topics, sign up and you’ll get a weekly update (I do). There are many unanswered questions (ex. “How do AC45 boats go faster than the windspeed on the downward leg?”) that as a yachtsman/woman you might be able to contribute in and develop the sum of humanity’s knowledge too – if you are into that type of thing.

"Dear Tom, I want to take this opportunity to thank you, and Jordan Yachts, for listing and selling our latest yacht. Our relationship has spanned over 20 years. We met you for the first time at the Newport Boat Show in the early 1990s. In 1994 you sold us a Stephens 47 cutter that we lived aboard until 1998. You personally installed a holding tank for us on the Stevens. You sold that boat in 1999 for 10k more than we paid for it. In 2003 we found a Bristol 41.1 on Yacht World located in the Sarasota, FL area and brought you in on the boat inspection, and eventual sale, because we trusted you and valued your thoughts and opinions. Because of your work, we negotiated an acceptable deal. You even helped us bring the boat from Sarasota to Ft. Lauderdale. We’ve enjoyed our time with the Bristol for 12 years and decided last December to put her on the market. We were in N Palm Beach at the time and you came up from Ft. Lauderdale to visit and to see what we had done to the boat over the years we had owned her. Last May, after our final cruise to the Bahamas, you came to our marina in SC to list and photograph our boat. The pictures and video you provided to Yacht World were critical in getting the buyers here from the Atlanta, GA area to view, and eventually purchase the boat. The coordination and support provided by Kathy at Jordan Yachts made the whole process seamless. Unfortunately, at age 76, my sailing days in “big” boats are over, but wanted to thank you and Jordan Yachts for providing expert and professional help in finding, and eventually selling for us, quality sailboats over the last 20 years." - PJ, S/V Dreamseeker 2
