Michael Dempsey | Letter Writers, Keep it Short

The opinions in the opinion section are way too long. The writer goes on and on about past letters and argue the same points back and forth. I like to read what and how other people feel and react to today’s headlines and issues. The passion and even anger about an issue can overwhelm a person in debating any event. My suggestion is to cut the opinion down to 500 words. If you cannot make your point in those few letters then write a book. P.S., around 500 letters.

On board 34.4m Sunseeker superyacht Settlement with Australian owner Michael Dempsey

Australian owner and founder of Ezidebit Michael Dempsey spends 10 weeks a year on board his 34.4 metre Sunseeker named Settlement, resulting in quite the adventure. I am from Australia and, though I have always been involved with water activities and boats, my first foray into yachting was only five years ago when I bought a 19.4 metre Sunseeker. I liked the look and at that size, I naively thought I could drive it myself. When my then skipper told me about a 34.4 metre Sunseeker, my first reaction was, I don’t want another boat. But it looked good and so for the hell of it I put in an offer and it was accepted. The boat was in Antibes and though the surveyor gave me a good report, my wife and I figured we better fly over and check it out. The first question I get is always about the name, Settlement; let’s just say the second choice was No Prenup!
