Thanks for the input.
I don't think the age of any thread matters unless the technology is obsolete (Often with PC's, not likely with sailboats) or the subject matter is of a timely nature (i.e., current weather/tidal conditions). A pet peeve of mine is when members post before they search. Why re-invent the wheel when so much information has already been discussed? When possible, add...don't duplicate...IMHO
