Re: Hurricane damaged boats

As Seabreeze said, Go for it. Your existing mechanical skills are more than adequate, they will transfer to boat repair skills fast. You will learn more about boats and boating by repairing this boat than any other way. You'll also have a lot of fun. Lake Ponchatrain? your main danger is running aground, which will also teach you a lot. A great deal of knowledge for very little money.

Welcome to Sailnet!

Be sure to check the dates of posts you are responding to when doing "searches" on SN. The original poster is likely long gone having posted this six years ago back in 2006....

Re: Hurricane damaged boats

Once upon a time, America was not a third world country, and computer programmers tried to offer new and rich products. If we could only revert back 25 years, someone would offer forum software that grayed out old posts, so a six year old post and thread would appear in shadowy gray type that would instantly clue in the reader that they were looking at the ghosts of topics past.

Or, after two years without a post, simplylock the thread to encourage new ones.

But you'll notice, with all the "web forum" software out there, none of them have offered anything to flag or lock old threads, despite a number of public mentions of the concept.

Maybe I need to run down to the patent office, and then hire some young Chinese programmer, who still thinks innovation is the way out of poverty?
