Everyone is an expert in one thing or another on here. For instance, I'm well experienced in 36 degree green water coming over the bow and to the pilot house windows on a 95 footer in the Gulf of Alaska...and also how to professionally barf over the side (or in the head, which ever) ;-)

Btw: I'm a n00b, too, so pay me no heed.

Whoa, that one made me think and now I have a headache

I'm no expert, just a sailor. But it doesn't take an expert to know the value of different answers to the same question.

I am an expert at swinging in a hammock and drinking beer while avoiding yardwork and putting off building that plywood canoe. Careful now boys, it's not as easy as it looks!

longislandsound,

I've always had a long standing respect for Jeff_H's advice on topics pertaining to naval architecture. Although, you have undoubtably noticed, that sailingdog has advanced to the coveted position of highest poster in sailnet's history . . . not that quantity equates to quality in any way .

Highest SailNet posters

Well..... now I think we are looking at obsessions I was in here at a bit after 7 this morning and SD had already posted 5 or 6 times. I think his PC is his alarm clock and the only way to turn it off is with a Sailnet Posting -
