or I'd have just written the whole site off as a gay barbequeing forum.
Are you saying this isn't a gay barbequeing forum! Sh** no wonder I don't fit in.

I found Sailnet from talking to a guy who owns a PSC 37, so far I'm happy I did.

Someone referenced a thread from Sailnet on the MSN Irwin Owners page. I followed it and have no reason to look back! This site is amazing and I really appreciate all of the advice coming from experienced sailors. I hope that I'll be able to contribute a fraction of what I receive.

I was looking for info on Sailing and Celestial navigation, found this forum and find it way too entertaining to leave. And someday I'll sail again, It's been over 30 years since I was able to try as a teenager!

A google search led me to a Sailnet boat review... That was the end of my free time.....

I first came here for the articles, read about half before they reorganized them, then I couldn't figure out which I had read and which I hadn't. In poking around to figure out what happened to the articles, I stumbled across the forums. My liver hasn't been the same since....
