Rod MacAlpine-Downie

On the most talented designers ever, and nowhere near as well known as he should be. Updated the catalogue and added some boats that I had not known he designed.  In the UK he is known mainly for his catamaran designs. In the US, for dinghies and daysailers that he and his partner Dick Gibbs did for Chrysler, MFG, and others. Saw a comment by Dick Gibbs daughter, who clearly attributed the somewhat obscure WHIP, to him.

I'm a big fan of the brevity and conciseness of your articles, you share important information and all this is very convenient and accessible.

Advertising is your main tool to have the business ready to go. Actually, everybody is busy in their company marketing over the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, online company is scammed with scammers. On occasion the provider hires you freelance, or occasionally it is a site designer which orders the copy google At an identical time, if you decide on the most suitable company having excellent reviews and reputation, you will enjoy well composed works. http://google.com/

Just read his biography, what a great man he was! I totally agree with you that world should know more about him! It’s very sad that many of true inventors are on the sideline of history. What we know about inventors of elevators or subway etc. In the time of internet era, it started to be easier to find information about inventors. However, it is still not good enough. For example, wiki article about Rod MacAlpine-Downie is incredibly short! It would really cool if websites like Writemyessay4me.org started to make content about it, maybe in some charity purposes.
