Kudos

I just have to say that I cant imagine there being a better forum than this...in just over 2 years I have gone from taking my initial courses to chartering various boats to now about to make a purchase..all with the invaluable resourses of this web site. From the moderators to the active posters to even the occasional poster many times in life you are not thanked for the work you put into something..but I just want to remind you what well laid out, informative, site this is and how it truly benefits "new cruisers" like myself!!

Thanks again,

sab30,
Couldn't agree with you more. I've found the number of people willing to take the time and trouble to help everyone to be quite amazing.

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.

This forum has definitely been the best "non local" resource I have. SD and other experts take the time to respond to answer a lot of questions and follow up patiently when the simple answer fails to penetrate my thick skull. I have only been on one other forum (the woodworking forum WoodCentral) where there is so much competence and so little ego. Very friendly place!

Thank you Sab30, and welcome aboard. It really has taken me a while to teach Cam and SD all they know, but I never gave up. I do hope to graduate SD to a monohull soon, but not sure he has quite mastered the art yet. We will keep trying.

CD has obviously gone off his meds again... everyone here knows that his only areas of expertise are dumping a load in his shorts or blowing up the BBQ chicken for dinner.
