Isn't it amazing how much you can learn on these forums, no matter what your experience level? Sometimes the discussions get a little heated or attitudes turn ugly, but overall, I've read a LOT of great ideas and different techniques on here that I can adopt for my own use. Maybe one day, with some experience under my belt, I can pay it forward.

Take care!

Yeah it can get a little prickly every once in a while (like in the HWS thread), but if you just maintain a thick skin and realize it's just the interwebs (where people say all kinds of goofy crap) - it's impossible to really get mad at anything that's said (or even any names you're called). It's all just for fun.

That said, I totally agree with you that SN is one of the best places on the planet to learn a hell of a lot about sailing. Some really great guys around here.
