Some of the names I'd recommend listening to are:
CruisingDad currently the technical editor for one of the Catalina owner groups—exceptionally knowledgable about barbeque grills and their detonation;
CardiacPaul is a marine surveyor with a better half that has an explosive temper;
Tartan34C is an old salt who's been reported lost at sea a few times but is still here
Btrayfors has a fair bit of electrical and radio knowledge from what I've seen;
Giulietta is a sailor of Portugese descent with a phat custom 42' racing boat—he collects photos of sailnet users, so you might want to send him one;
Camarderie is a long-time sailor and ex-moderator of this site...but he's about to sell his boat for an RV.... so it's your call on his advice..
and PBzeer is off sailing up the east coast at the moment, but still checks in on occasion.
What is your real question???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
