Just a hint: If you're asking for help about a boat—it really helps if you say what boat it is, and give details related to what you are asking help on.

For instance, if you need help with re-powering a boat, you might want to say what kind of boat it is, and what kind of engine it is currently equipped with.

Another example: If you need trouble with a marine head, please say what make and model head it is. The solution for a Lavac head is going to be a bit different than that for a Baby Blake, or a Raritan.

Unless you're being intentionally stupid... why make it harder for people to help you?
perhaps it's a learned behavior from working in a large corporate environment - being "obtuse"

It's funny, I look at this issue from a totally different perspective. SDog and PBzeer are not employees of Sailnet and so it's just bizarre that this would bother them. It seems to me that when you start getting stressed out over issues like this you really need to reevaluate your life! lol.

I can't help but wonder Surfesq, why you think this stresses anyone out? And that you do, why it matters to you? It's merely a minor annoyance, that's all. The idea of this place is primarily, as a resource for people with questions. Why you would find it odd that it would be helpful if they were more concise when asking them? You might want to re-evaluate your suggestion about re-evaluating one's life. After all, one of the things I like best about people who sail, is they are always ready to help another sailor.

I have a toad-strangler 16 with a v12 jag motor, dual 4 barrels and overdrive. Does it need a mast? AND should I add a head or should I issue diapers to all the passengers?

does it need a mast? not with that V12.

No head

Tell them to bring their own diapers! and if anything spills on the deck they are liable!

Panty Boy, heres the problem. It's you, the self appointed answer man of Sailnet who danes to advise newbies on the best way to ask a question. It's comical, particularly since your answers are so typically void of substance, value or accuracy. But I will give you this....nobody does a me-too post better than you.
