I heard about this site when I began looking for a boat in February 2007.
I did not post until recently.
Every time I had a question I went to a forum and read every post. I learned about things I never knew about. I was taught about costs, ideas, problems, and issues.
I balanced opinions against lessons. Fact from fiction. Preferences against knowledge.
This site was invaluable as I continued my search. I found out what I did not know, and learned what I needed to.
When I was asked about something that was new to me I would tell the person asking that I had a thousand people waiting to guide me and I would be an expert as soon as I could get to my computer and educate myself with thier experience.
I continue to be educated by this site and thank everyone who posted and added to my body of knowledge.
