I'd highly recommend not posting information like your phone number and your e-mail addresses on-line. I'd also recommend you read the POST in my signature.

No. I just hate seeing people get nailed by spammers and identity thieves. :D

BTW, if someone PM's you, you won't be able to reply until you have at least FIVE posts reply once more in this thread and you should be good to go.

Chris, don't let him kid you. Anyone who averages 8000 posts per year probably doesn't have a day job somewhere else. :)

ChrisHamilton 12-14-2010 03:22 AM

haha website expert doesn't count as a day job?

donradclife 12-14-2010 08:09 AM

Its kind of like the job you are looking for--neither pays...

ChrisHamilton 12-14-2010 10:45 AM

haha thanks for the inspiration, I'm just lookin to become a professional sailor before I start getting into mechanics and boatbuilding, just makes sense to me to learn how to sail em, then learn how to fix em, then learn how to make em, by the way you know any boat mechanics or boat builders?
