The Delivery Skipper - St. Maarten to Ibiza thread is disappointing. I have many stories and a wealth of real life experience I could share. If this is an indicator of the audience on here I would be best served to just polity say this is not a venue where I feel generous sharing what I have spent a lifetime learning.

It is a pretty active site however.
As I'm sure you have guessed there are many readers that would value your experience and not say much combined with folks who say a lot and can be a little rough.
There is also the new guy effect where you may have 50 plus years of experience but until you have posted enough for the regulars to get a sense of your background you may get a little hazing.
It is all in good fun and it does not take long for folks to find out who you really are. It is just a little new guy hazing, all in good fun and in the end you may find a lot of appreciate listeners and maybe even lean a thing or two yourself.
